Thom Bresh tribute to Hank Penny


Recommended Posts

Not many videos of Hank Penny floating around, but he hired a young 16 year old guy to play banjo and that kid did good, old Hank gave a lot of guys who went on to be bigger stars then Hank who is mostly forgotten now. Roy Clark, the Collins Kids, Roger Miller, Thom Bresh, Merle Travis, not to mention he was also cofounder and owner of the Palomino Club, which was the catalyst for Rock n Roll and Country in So. Cal.Hank incorporated a lot of blues songs into his act and put a country spin on them, sounded a lot like Rock n Roll,
