On Friday, February 8th at 7:30 pm, the Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM) presents Mile Twelve, a fresh, hard-driving young band walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass. The performance is part of the 2018-2019 CCM Concert Series. 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.”
Earning recognition and awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, Mile Twelve’s inventive and spirited music appeals to all age groups. Strong instrumentals and harmonies shine through whether they are performing their original tunes or their clever renditions of classic pop tunes, such as Elton John’s Rocket Man. Their applauded debut full-length album Onwards has earned the band time at the top of the bluegrass charts as well as an IBMA nomination for 2018 Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year.
The diverse and entertaining line-up of the Concord Conservatory of Music Concert Series brings jazz, bluegrass, and classical music to Concord. Generous donors and a grant from the Middlesex Savings Bank have helped us bring Mile Twelve to our community, as well as our entire concert series.
Tickets for Mile Twelve are available for purchase at ConcordConservatory.org and at the door: $20 for adults, free for students 18 and under. For more information call 978-369-0010 or email info@ConcordConservatory.org
