Live Bait Theatre is excited to presented Ryan Cook performing as Hank Williams on Friday, November 16 at George’s Roadhouse at 7:30 pm. 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 Im 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 wasnt disappointed!” John Walker, Producer -Music City Roots
