We are excited to announce a newcomer to the Plaza Outdoor Stage! Hank, Pattie & The Current is a Raleigh-based quintet fronted by two veteran North Carolina’s bluegrass musicians, Hank Smith on banjo and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw on fiddle and vocals. Joining forces with some of the Triangle area’s most versatile musicians, their sound is a soulful evolution of American acoustic music weaving bluegrass into the tapestry of jazz, blues, and classical styles. The band is on tour regionally and nationally in 2016 in support of their new, self-titled album on Robust Records.
The band makes use of traditional bluegrass instrumentation in a nontraditional way to play original music that goes beyond the limits of the idiom. The music is vocal and instrumental, allowing the band to experiment with arrangements and tailor the compositions to become vehicles for exploration. The band is rounded out with Ben Parker on guitar and vocals, Robert Thornhill on mandolin and vocals, and E. Scott Warren on bass.
Firefly 2018! Families, musicians, and fireflies will head to Town Park on the last weekend in July for the Firefly Festival celebrating the end of summer.

A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker. Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
Gates open at 6:00
