Hank Cramer

"Hank Cramer is a traveling folksinger who lives in Washington State. He is best known for his booming bass voice, accompanied by vintage flat-top guitar and a wry sense of humor. His repertoire is a mix of original, traditional, and contemporary folk songs. Most of his songs tell the stories of cowboys, sailors, soldiers, miners, adventurers and just plain drifters. That fits with Hank's life story: he has been an underground miner, a professional soldier, shanty-man on a square-rigged sailing ship, wrangler for a high-country outfitter, and a world traveler. Those experiences make Hank's music ring with a special authenticity. Hank's touring circuit has spread wider and wider. He now has twelve CD's in print and two television sound-tracks to his credit. In addition to concert engagements, Hank is an avid historian and presents educational programs which weave together music, history, and cultural traditions."
