MILE 12 BLUEGRASS BAND

"Mile Twelve's instrumental skills reflect natural abilities enhanced by serious study of bluegrass tradition and a fearless desire to create fresh pathways.  From the opening number of their new EP, it’s plain that their vocal skills are equal to their picking prowess. Their trio blend is as tight as it gets.  Their duo and solo singing is equally praiseworthy. 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

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 released their debut 6-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 North East Folk Alliance. 
The summer of 2016 has held more milestones for this young group: opening for Tim O’Brien at the Station Inn in Nashville, winning the Podunk Bluegrass Festival Band Contest and being nominated for a Momentum Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association and adding a fifth band member: mandolin player David Benedict. This winter they will be heading into the studio in Nashville to record their debut full-length album with producer Stephen Mougin at the helm.

"There were touches of the magic that Paul Simon
and Art Garfunkel capture so flawlessly." - Raleigh Music

RYANHOOD

“As per usual, Green and Hood expertly weave pop-sensible tracks that ride the alternative folk wave straight into a medley of musical influences. From a clap-along opener on through the incredible rock-leaning guitar showcase that is 'Welcome You Into My Head' and the sweet, unrequited vocal-centric closing number, it’s another compelling installment from the Tucsonans.”
- PopMatters
"The pair create indie folk with a bit of bounce, but don’t let the feel-good attitude in the music distract you from the seriously dexterous guitar work."
- YabYumWest

"There were touches of the magic that Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel capture so flawlessly."
- Raleigh Music
Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. It was there that they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene, where Campus Activities Magazine would name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.” They’ve since gone on to perform more than 800 shows in 45 U.S. states over the past decade and have shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, and many more.

House concerts are a wonderful grassroots phenomenon.

World-class musicians and developing local talent alike perform in the intimacy of private homes and similar nontraditional spaces.
