More About Me

Hilary Hawke is known for having a fluid ability to play and switch between many styles of banjo playing, while preserving the integrity and the beauty of each style. As a multi-instrumentalist she performs as a singer, guitarist, bassist, banjoist, clarinetist, and fiddle. She has devoted herself to learning and studying various styles of music including folk, oldtime, bluegrass, but also considers herself to be a music lover and brings this into her own songwriting and performing. Hilary currently performs on Broadway as the featured banjoist for Oklahoma! She is also a guitar, bass and banjo coach for celebrities and actors/actresses and enjoys being a side person in bands as well as performing in theatre productions around the country. Her major influences now are too many to list, and she really is influenced by anyone making music that is near and dear to their heart. Some of her favorite banjo players (in no particular order) Jim Mills, Fred Cockerham, Lily Mae Ledford, Tommy Jarrell, Mike Seeger, Dock Boggs, Tony Trischka, Bill Keith, Roscoe Holcomb, Matokie Slaughter, Ola Belle Reed...
