We have a treat in store for our next concert when we welcome a young bluegrass band all the way from Boston Massachusetts. Support on the night is provided by local trio “Ger & Derroll McGrath & Gerry Madden”

Please come along and give our American visitors a good Tramore welcome.

Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass. Based in Boston, Massachusetts and fast gaining recognition for their outstanding performances throughout bluegrass and folk circles, Evan Murphy, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Nate Sabat and BB Bowness create 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 rise.  They released their debut 6-track self titled EP, performed extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, including several major festivals; Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Ossipee Valley Music Festival, Joe Val Bluegrass Festival and Baygrass Bluegrass Festival.  A track from their debut EP was featured on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction’s “Hand Picked with Del McCoury”, another track was featured on Spotify’s “Fresh Bluegrass” 2015 playlist and they were selected as formal showcase artists at the 2015 North East Folk Alliance.  Mile Twelve looks forward to hitting the road again in 2016 and continuing to connect with audiences around the world.
