Washboard Hank

Earlier this year, I interviewed Washboard Hank, about his memories of Willie P. Bennett.

I was able to interview Hank at the Twisted Pines Music in Movies festival about his own music and songwriting. Washboard Hank is a Canadian folk music institution. He has released several CDs of quirky and humorous music, a Children’s CD and played for many years in Fred Eaglesmith’s band. Our interview delved into the meat of songwriting but also features some of his more adult oriented material so I’m putting an Itunes explicit label on this episode.
