Two of North Carolina’s veteran bluegrass musicians, Hank Smith and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw, join forces with some of the most versatile musicians in the Carolinas to create modern, American, acoustic music featuring the full range of their talents as composers and arrangers.

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 is lead vocalist. The Current includes Billie Feather on guitar and Stevie Martinez on bass.

Winston-Salem Symphony String Quartet: Through the Winston-Salem Symphony’s Symphony Unbound series, it brings music out of the concert hall and into the community, collaborating with musicians from other genres. In this performance, a string quartet collaborates with Hank, Pattie & The Current. The evening will begin with a set by the String Quartet, followed by a set with Hank, Pattie & The Current, and finishing with a set with both groups.

Adults $25, children 12 & younger admitted free
