Hank and Pattie Duo
Hank and Pattie Duo
Hank Smith (banjo) and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw (Fiddle) have been playing together in various capacities for the last eight years in various ensembles that range from bluegrass to jazz to classical. 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 Hank and Pattie, 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.
Crooks & Crows
Crooks & Crows
Crooks and Crows is a gritty blend of Americana, Folk, and Honky Tonk. Their progressive country sound brings you on the road and through a diverse landscape of beautiful, dusty, and honest experiences involving motorcycles, ghost towns, battles between good and evil, failed baptisms, and broken hearts and bones. If early Springsteen, Dylan, George Jones, and Hank Williams were in a four-way head-on collision, Crooks and Crows would be the oily, bloody mess flowing towards the gutter- draining to the creek.

Their debut, self-titled album contains a mix of upbeat, cogent anthems, lyrical play, rootsy finger-picking and raw, lonesome emotions backed by dulcet tones. John Patrick jokes of the band, "We basically like to play with the crowd's emotions. If you don't feel as though you've been on an emotional rollercoaster after our set then we haven't done our job. Crooks and Crows is your high school boyfriend."
