Live Music - Hank & Pattie
Thursday, November 2, 2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Two of North Carolina’s veteran bluegrass musicians join forces with some of the Triangle area’s most versatile musicians to create modern, American, acoustic music featuring the full range of their talents as composers and arrangers.
Hank Smith and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw have been playing together in various capacities for the last eight years in various ensembles including The Kickin Grass Band and Morning After Music. The music they create on and off stage sounds as though it came from one mind. The duo approach improvisation with lightning fast thought and reaction and compose intricate, as well as dulcet melody, vocal harmony and lockstep rhythm. For them, music is an endless playground of texture, tone and space that allows for pure joy in playing and a straightforward maturity one would expect from musicians twice their ages.
