My featured guest for the 12th episode of Spirit and Roots was the Godfather of London’s Alt-Folk and Americana scene, Andy Hankdog. Here he is performing his track, ‘Margaret Finch,’ for us live in the studio.

We had a great chat charting his career so far and his musical experiences with The Sex Pistols, Joan Baez, Marc Bolan – and, of course, his seminal UK Folk-Roots band, Hank Dogs.
