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."
The first southern Tasmania appearance of this hot Boston based bluegrass band.
Special guests: The Stragglers
Ratbag bluegrass and boozy folk tunes played by two miserable mates and their accomplices coming together to share a yarn, drink a beer, and because music is cheaper than therapy.
the Stragglers" sound is a soothing and playful mix of folk, country and bluegrass, the combined effort of singer/songwriters Samara Cullen, Teresa Dixon (The Little Sisters). Both offer smooth gravel and honey vocal tones and harmonies. From the lilting, liberating feeling of The River Song to the rowdy pants down fun of Weatherboard House the songs on their soon to be released album speak of love, land and liquor. The brazen swagger and punk attitude of the band has lent to them being affectionately labelled ‘the rat bags of country folk’. They are currently recording a much anticipated album to be released through Tasmanian label Folk ‘Til Ya Punk Records.
