Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass. Banjo luminary Tony Trischka says, “Mile Twelve is carrying the bluegrass tradition forward with creativity and integrity.” Since its formation in the fall of 2014, Mile Twelve has quickly been on the rise. They released their debut six-track self-titled EP, and performed extensively throughout the U.S., Ireland and Canada, including several major festivals: Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, FreshGrass Festival, Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival and Joe Val Bluegrass Festival. A track from their debut EP was featured on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction’s “Hand Picked with Del McCoury,” while another track was featured on Spotify’s “Fresh Bluegrass” 2015 playlist. That same year, they were selected as formal showcase artists at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance.
Band members include Evan Murphy on guitar, David Benedict on mandolin, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes on fiddle, Nate Sabat on bass and BB Bowness on banjo. Their energy and youthful flair is sure to make for a great night in music on the Rialto stage.
