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. The band is on tour regionally and nationally in 2016 in support
of their new, self titled album on Robust Records
.

The band makes use of traditional bluegrass instrumentation in a
nontraditional way to present original music to the listener that goes
beyond the limits of the idiom. The arrangements take on a new level of
maturation that follows in the footsteps of Bela Fleck, Mark O’Connor,
Chris Thile, Sam Bush, Edgar Meyer, and Tony Rice. Hank, Pattie & The
Current want to pick up where seminal crossover groups like The Punch
Brothers, Strength In Numbers and the ever changing Bluegrass Allstars call
home. The music is vocal and instrumental, allowing the band to experiment
with arrangements and tailor the compositions to become vehicles for
exploration. Hank Smith plays banjo, Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw plays fiddle and
sings. The band is rounded out with Ben Parker on guitar on vocals, Robert
Thornhill on mandolin and vocals and E. Scott Warren on bass.
