Based in Boston, MA, 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 (guitar), Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle) Nate Sabat (bass), BB Bowness (banjo), and David Benedict (mandolin) write captivating songs and daring instrumental pieces from diverse influences.
Since their formation in the fall of 2014, Mile Twelve has quickly been on the rise. They’ve performed extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, and Japan 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 has been featured on multiple bluegrass playlists on Spotify. In 2017, the band won the Momentum Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Soon after, they released their debut full-length record Onwards, produced by Stephen Mougin (Sam Bush Band).
“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 the 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
“Mile Twelve’s instrumental skills reflect natural abilities enhanced by serious study of bluegrass tradition and a fearless desire to create fresh pathways. The arrangements often surprise with subtle twists and turns… delicious false endings, dropped beats, arco bass and fiddle duets, and on and on. Mile Twelve is carrying the tradition forward with creativity and integrity.” -Tony Trischka
