Music in the Gardens: Hank, Pattie and the Current with The Brother Boys

Wednesday, July 20, 2022 | 7:00 pm

Sarah P. Duke Gardens

Bluegrass visionaries Hank Smith (banjo) and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw’s (fiddle) innovative twist on traditional bluegrass music is a soulful brew flavored with classical, Motown, jazz, and pop sounds. Joined by Billie Feather on guitar and Stevie Martinez on bass, this dynamic local group is performing in support of their fourth album, Rise Above, from Robust Records.

Ed Snodderly and Eugene Wolf of The Brother Boys will kick off the evening with their fresh take on country music – a sound described as “like hillbillies whose moonshine is spiked with acid” in People Magazine.

Duke Performances’ 2022 Music in the Gardens is presented in partnership with Sarah P. Duke Gardens and That Station and supported by Duke Continuing Studies and The Forest at Duke. The series is made possible, in part, with support from Duke Summer Session.
