Hiddleston sings at music festival

Tom Hiddleston has showed off his musical skills when he performed on the stage of a US music festival.

The Thor star, best known for playing Marvel villain Loki, took to the stage unannounced on two days at the Wheatland music festival in Remus, Michigan, which celebrates bluegrass, folk and Americana music.

The 33-year-old actor, complete with a guitar and an American accent, treated the unsuspecting crowds to a full-twang rendition of country star Hank Williams' track, Move It On Over, on Saturday (September 6), reported E! News.

He then returned on Sunday (September 7) to join Rodney Crowell for a performance of Hank's hit, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.

His performances could be seen as rehearsals for his upcoming film role as Hank in the biopic, I Saw The Light, which is due to begin shooting in Louisiana in October.

The film will chronicle the singer's triumphant rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his personal life and health. The American singer died at the age of 29 from alcohol-induced heart failure.
