Bookmatch Duo

Kim & EricWe are fiddler Kim Patch and bassist Eric Smalley.

We play a range of original, traditional and contemporary instrumental music, including old-time, blues, ragtime, bluegrass, waltzes, contra dance tunes, and English country dance tunes.

We’re also members of the Creek River String Band, AKE Trio and Louder Than Milk. We’ve played throughout New England with these and other groups in venues as diverse as The Burren – Backroom, the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, and Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor, Maine.  Kim has also played in community orchestras, including the Boston Chamber Symphony.  Learn more about the other groups we play in.

Interested in having us play for your event? Contact us at or (617) 325-3966.

Also, for as long as we’re cooped up, we’ll be playing live on the Bookmatch Duo Facebook page Tuesdays from 7 to 7:30 pm. Join us!
