A number of area singers and musicians from the Hancock and Berkeley Springs area will be performing in a tribute to Hank Williams this Friday night.
The event — “Celebrating Hank” — is sponsored by the Hancock Arts Council.
The free show will take place at the Hancock Performing Arts Center, in Hancock Town Hall, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 13 – just four days before what would have been Hank Sr.’s 90th birthday.
Considered by many to be the greatest singer-songwriter in Country Music history, Williams wrote and performed such tunes as “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Jambalaya,” “You Win Again” and “Hey, Good Lookin’.”
“Celebrating Hank” is the latest of the Hancock Arts Council’s tributes to influential American singers.
Previous evenings honored Elvis Presley and Woody Guthrie.
The Hank Williams show is being produced for the arts council by John Douglas and Mike Kligerman.
Singers include Alyse and Aubrey Hoffmann, Judy Youngblood, Kate Evans, Angela Petry, Sinclair Hamilton, Carolyn Kligerman and Elaini Arthur with Donnie McCusker.
The show will feature a house band with Mike Kligerman, Vince Romano, Bob Wurster and Richard Hopkins.
