Thread Name: Hank Snow Festival
Subject: RE: Hank snow Festival
A local musician and I have often shared our admiration for Hank Snow. He is a fine singer and guitar picker in Hank's style. He won the Hank Snow singing contest several years back at the Hank Snow festival. In his prime, which lasted for quite a few years, Hank was an excellent singer. Every word was clearly sung and he had a knack for selecting strong material. I still listen to old Hank Snow recordings and am never disappointed. In every song the voice and accompaniment enhance the lyrics and melody. In my opinion, Hank Snow is one of the all time greats.
