Doff a cap to Hank
12:00pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
Hats Off to Roger, the titfer whatever the weather. Hank Wangford, incorrigible hat lover, returns to the hat epicenter of Britain to open his beloved Bridport Hat Festival on Friday September 6 at Bridport Arts Centre.
Backed by the stellar Lost Cowboys featuring BJ Cole on pedal steel, Richard Allen on guitar, and Anna Robinson to harmonise with him, Hank will present a shifting panorama of headwear and country music, heartbreakers and toe tappers.
Join the variously bonneted High Priest of Pain for a traditional Dorset Glimpse of Gloom and sing along to the Bridport Hat Festival Waltz.
