On Saturday Oct 14th, come and hear Bluegrass Band, Mile Twelve from Boston, USA at The Whanganui Musicians Club during their first tour of New Zealand.

Mile Twelve has performed throughout Ireland, Canada and the United States wowing audiences with their super hot picking and tight trio harmonies. Nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association's momentum award, Banjo luminary Tony Trischka says, "Mile Twelve is carrying the bluegrass tradition forward with creativity and integrity."

Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass. Fast gaining recognition for their outstanding performances in bluegrass and folk circles, Evan Murphy, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Nate Sabat, BB Bowness and David Benedict write captivating songs and daring instrumental pieces from diverse influences. Banjo luminary Tony Trischka says, "Mile Twelve is carrying the bluegrass tradition forward with creativity and integrity."

Since their formation in the fall of 2014, Mile Twelve has quickly been on the rise. They’ve performed extensively throughout the U.S., Ireland and Canada, including sets at major festivals such as Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, FreshGrass Festival, Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, and Joe Val Bluegrass Festival.

Their music is in rotation on the Bluegrass Junction Sirius XM channel, and their rendition of the Stanley Brothers classic “Our Last Goodbye” was featured on a Spotify "Fresh Bluegrass” playlist. The band has opened for Tim O’Brien at The Station Inn, has been nominated for the 2017 Momentum Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association, and will be heading out on a month long tour of New Zealand and Australia in the fall of 2017. The band is set to release their debut full-length record “Onwards”, (Oct. 27, 2017) produced by Stephen Mougin.

"In recent years, Boston’s Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory have added extra fire to that city’s already churning cauldron of traditional string players. Out of this spicy soup jumps Mile Twelve, a group of five accomplished bluegrass musicians who write, sing, and play like the wind. Serious players who have serious fun, Mile Twelve is a group to watch in the coming decade." - Tim O’Brien
