    Default Mile Twelve on tour | Chattanooga, TN

    I saw Mile Twelve last night, the fantastic Boston bluegrass band featuring David Benedict of "Mandolin Mondays" fame.

    If they're within a few hours of you on their current tour, you need to go see them! They are great songwriters, instrumentalists and arrangers. In other words, their covers don't sound like covers, and their original tunes already sound like old standards.

    I was glad that they had a good crowd at the intimately sized Barking Legs Theatre, because when I saw Mike Compton and Joe Newberry there a few months ago, there were literally only a half-dozen attendees. (Better for me, though, because they played completely un-amplified and it was basically a public practice session.)

    One last word -- as expected, David deserves all the accolades he gets. He's a super nice dude who actually remembered my name from when we met a few years ago / our infrequent Cafe interactions. Keep the good stuff coming!

    Right on Drew, they are at ISIS Music Hall in Asheville April 25. Great listening room and as Drew said, well worth a few hours drive.

    I just saw them open for the Del McCoury Band last Thursday in Chicago, and they are the real deal. Truly wonderful music and a great stage presence. My wife and I bought both of their albums at their table after the concert. Very nice people and very good music. I'm a new fan for sure.

    Saw Mile Twelve when they were touring the UK a few weeks ago and can concur that they’re all really accomplished musicians. Favourite song of the evening was Good Times Every Night.

    I take fiddle lessons from their fiddler. They are all very good musicians.
