About Hank, Pattie & The Current

Hank Smith and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw are backed by an all-star band comprised of North Carolina musicians E. Scott Warren on Bass, Ben Parker on guitar and vocals, and Robert Thornhill on mandolin and vocals.

Hank, Pattie & The Current will release a second album of original material Spring 2017 on Robust Records. The first is self-titled and available here:

The band takes a bold new direction to the traditional music world with their take on the form. Hank sums it up perfectly in a September article in Bluegrass Today: “It will be a one stop shop for all of the musical influences we’ve ever had.”
