Ryan Cook as Hank Williams @ Astor Theatre
Oct 27 @ 7:30 pm

“Ryan Cook’s channeling of Hank Williams – his voice and heartache- is a moving experience. A terrific performance by this young artist and his band”- Harry Thurston, Gaspereau Press

Ryan Cook began performing as Hank Williams in 2009 when he performed consecutive sold-out weeks of the Maynard Collins play “The Show He Never Gave” in Sackville, New Brunswick.

Having performed on some of the same stages as Hank Williams including the Ryman Auditorium and Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree in Nashville, TN, Ryan has also studied Hank Williams’ life through the biographical work of Colin Escott, Sneezy Waters, The Country Music Hall of Fame (TN), Hank Williams Boyhood Home & Museum (AL), and The Hank Williams Museum (Montgomery (AL).

Along with bandmates the Drifting Cowboys, this two-act feature performance includes 22 songs from the man hailed by many as the greatest country music singer and songwriter of all time.

Ryan Cook and company re-animate the sounds of Don Helms’ haunting steel guitar, Jerry Rivers’ fiddle arrangements, and the yodeling of the lovesick boy from Georgiana, Luke the Drifter himself: Hank Williams.

“I feel like I’m watching Hank in his prime on a stage that he was no stranger to… I flew to Nova Scotia to experience the magic for myself, and wasn’t disappointed!” – John Walker, Producer –Music City Roots

Lloyd Spiegel – Australian Blues Guitar Sensation @ Astor Theatre
Nov 1 @ 7:30 pm

“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.” – Rolling Stone.

Australian blues legend Lloyd Spiegel is a trailblazer in his field and one of his country’s most recognized guitarists, recently being named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the 50 greatest Australian guitarists of all time. A touring artist since age 11, with a relentless tour schedule across the globe, the seven time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most unique stories in music. Spiegel blends jaw-dropping guitar expertise with a commanding voice, powerful songwriting, comedy and storytelling that delivers a complete concert experience on the cutting edge of the modern blues genre.

Spiegel’s 8th release, ‘Backroads’ is a hard edged, personal and brutally honest account of his touring life and follows up from his previous albums, all of which debuted in the top 10 of the Australian independent music charts and holding the #1 spot on the Australian Blues Chart for several weeks.

“A guitarist almost without peer, Spiegel deconstructs how the blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door” – Australian Guitar Player Magazine.
