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.
