St. Stephens Night party! From 1984 to 2003, from Princes St. to New York, Hank Wedel has lived life as a musician. Born in New York his parents moved back to his mother’s home town of Mallow when he was 11 and he has been hopping between Cork and New York ever since. His band,"Open Kitchen" has survived through many different incarnations, but the current line-up has endured the last 6 years.
