Mile Twelve

Location: R.A. Fountain

En route to IBMA’s World of Bluegrass, Mile Twelve stopped by for a terrific show–another of those acts we’d not get to RAF unless they were on their way to somewhere else.

[Fountain, NC] The Boston-based bluegrass quartet Mile Twelve plays a concert of traditional and original bluegrass at Fountain General Store on Saturday, September 24.

“This is one of the best new bluegrass bands in New England,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store. They will be featured in three showcase events at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass, staged in Raleigh Sept. 26 -Oct. 1.


“Individually, these will be some of the best young pickers we’ve hosted,” added Albright. “And together, they’re a terrific band that also features excellent lead and harmony vocals.”


Bluegrass legend Tony Trischka says their instrumental skills “reflect natural abilities enhanced by serious study of bluegrass tradition and a fearless desire to create fresh pathways.”
