Derek Smith brings a guitar and Sally Potter along to discuss reprising his role as Hank Williams for a Ten Pound Fiddle show.  He first portrayed the legendary singer on stage for LCC’s production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway, and again at Williamston Theatre for a night with the Drifitn’ Cowboys.  He walks, talks, and sings like him, and even the publicist couldn’t be sure which photo was the real Hank when sending out flyers.  He shares the stories and songs of his research into the man and the myth.
