“It’s fun; it’s energetic; it’s riveting!” – No Depression
New sounds in acoustic music! Hear two of the hottest modern bluegrass bands on the scene today at the legendary Isis Music Hall in beautiful Asheville, NC on June 18.
Hank and Pattie
Bluegrass ambassadors Hank Smith and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw join forces once again with their original and energetic new soulgrass band, Hank and Pattie. Hank and Pattie take traditional bluegrass and infuse it with their own flair, drawing from a melting pot of styles including classical and Motown, which adds up to an authentic and unique reflection of American music. “We all come from different backgrounds but seem to have a common link that has connected us from the beginning. Each individual brings his or her piece of the puzzle to the table, and this ensemble forms its own unique sound,” Pattie says in a September, 2015, article in Bluegrass Today. While some of the music sounds old school and some sounds fresh and new, their overall musicianship, vocal harmonies, impassioned delivery and innovative arrangements captivate all generations of music lovers.
The Gina Furtado Project
Fronted by banjoist, singer and songwriter Gina Furtado, the Gina Furtado Project lays heavy emphasis on catchy, relatable, original material that spans the gamut from bluegrass to swing to gypsy jazz and beyond.
With two IBMA nominations for Banjo Player of the Year to show for it, Gina has been quickly earning recognition as one of the most innovative banjoists on the scene today. The Bluegrass Situation says, '‘It is no surprise that her songs would showcase her swift and graceful picking” but that her album also “reveals her to be a graceful singer and insightful songwriter.”
Joining Gina is a cast of equally compelling and creative musicians: sisters Malia Furtado and Lulu Furtado on fiddle and bass, as well as Asheville native Drew Matulich on guitar.
