On a Tuesday night at the erstwhile Tir Na Nog, Hank Smith was performing his weekly hosting duties at the Beer & Banjos series (which has since moved to Raleigh Times) when he came across an interesting pair of musicians called The Reckless Brothers.

At that moment, Smith was between a handful of projects. This was certainly a change, as Smith has spent many years as a member of Barefoot Manner, Kickin' Grass, The Morning After, and, more recently, his Blu-Bop Bela Fleck tribute band. He had planned to form a duo with Pattie Kinlaw, but his encounter with The Reckless Brothers gave him bigger ideas. After recruiting the hard-driving duo and adding bassist Scott Warren from Blu-Bop, Smith and Kinlaw formed Hank, Pattie & The Current.

On Friday at King's, they offered their big introduction with two well rehearsed, diverse sets that showcased the strengths the group can bring to the sometimes-stale bluegrass genre.

Below, check some clips from the evening's performance and, then, the music video the group released.
