Join us for the final concert of the season at our All Faiths Venue! Touring musician and ACMA member Hank Woji takes the stage with a merry band of friends, including Rob Pastore on pedal steel and bass, and Roy Schneider & Kim Mayfield, on guitar, bass, mandolin, dobro and vocals.

A self described ‘Jersey Shore Ex-Pat turned West Texas Desert Rat’, Hank cut his musical teeth in the vibrant Asbury Park, NJ music scene of the 1980s & 90s. In the Spring of 2001 Hank moved to Houston, TX, and found his new musical voice as a Singer Songwriter, but it was his chance move, in 2009, to the far West Texas desert town of Terlingua, that has most reshaped his life and his music.

Critics have described Hank’s music as “acoustic-wielding, sharply observed, Americana all the way” and being “in the best tradition of the Texas troubadours like Guy Clarke, Townes Van Zandt and Butch Hancock”

Of his recently released 6th CD, Tony Award winning songwriter, Anaïs Mitchell says: “Highways, Gamblers, Devils and Dreams is a sprawling meditation on mythic American themes, Hank is a warm-hearted and precise troubadour of the old school.” The album debuted at #5 on the September 2023 Euro Americana chart.

Over his 40+ year music career, Hank has performed with such notable artists as: Jonathan Byrd, Joe Jencks, David Amram, Spook Handy, Bob Livingston, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger.

A proud union member of AFM Local 1000, he’s still based in Terlingua, TX and tours nationally, performing at coffeehouses, theaters, clubs, festivals and house concerts throughout the US.


Opening the show for Hank is ACMA member musician Chakulla. Chakulla hails from Punta Gorda where he donates his time and talent to his Hunger Bus Project and The Happy Place!
