    Default Mile Twelve loses two members, gains two more

    David Benedict (mandolin) and Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle) just announced they're leaving Mile Twelve. Not particularly surprising. Bluegrass bands do this a lot. Suspect David and his wife Tabitha are going full-time with their music, but I've also noticed David has kind of carved out a niche online that's doing way better than 99% of the mandolin players trying the same--meaning he's making living wage kind of $ on Patreon. Bronwyn's stock was already high and now winning IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year she's obviously in high demand. Mile Twelve is a very good band and BB is a monster of a banjo player. They'll continue to do quite well.

    From the band:

    To our friends, fans and family, we’d like to announce that Bronwyn and David are moving on from Mile Twelve. These are two of the most impressive musicians in bluegrass, and we will miss them dearly. We have driven countless miles together, across this country and others, late into the night and on into the sunrise. We have laughed ourselves to tears. We’ve grown up, and created something bigger than ourselves. We’ve had days of travel so chaotic we had to lean on each other to make it through, and shows so perfect we found ourselves suspended in a shared musical flow. We know David and Bronwyn will thrive in all of their adventures to come, and we’ll treasure our years together.

    Change breeds growth, and with that we are thrilled to welcome Ella Jordan and Korey Brodsky into our family. They are inspiring players, ready to bring their huge talents to this band and create something new. We can’t thank our community of fans enough for supporting us through everything. We love all of you and look forward to sharing music with you soon.

    We have our first Boston show in two years coming up next week at the City Winery and would love to see your smiling faces! It's Thursday, October 14th at the City Winery (ticket link below).

    Evan, BB and Nate
