¡AH HA! Andrew Hardin & Hank Alrich is a two man riot act celebrating acoustic guitars and excellent songs. This will be their first-ever showcase for John Conquest and his 3rd Coast Music magazine at Amelia’s, and it promises to be a glorious event in that lovely and hospitable back yard.
Andrew Hardin is renowned for his work with Tom Russell, whom he accompanied internationally for twenty-five years, Katy Moffatt, Audrey Auld, Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Malcolm Holcombe, Joel Guzman, John Fullbright, with Jeannie Burns as Hardin Burns, and many other artists worldwide. A dangerous man with a guitar in his hands, highly regarded by his peers, he has performed on and produced hundreds of albums during a ongoing career spanning more than four decades. Andrew lives outside of Wimberley TX where he is a passionate and articulate spokesman for and activist on behalf of both his community and our planet.
Hank Alrich is little known outside of a small circle of friends, and the Central Texas music scene that he helped nurture during his tenure at Armadillo World Headquarters, the concert venue that put Austin on the international live music concert map. For the last thirty-plus years he has been living next to the middle of nowhere outside of a small town in the northern California Sierra Nevada, raising a family, writing songs, and playing professionally near home. With the family raised he now splits his time between home and Texas, composing, performing, and producing.
