mile twelve (USA)
I first came across this band in 2016 at IBMA. They won the IBMA Momentum Award in 2017 for bands on the rise and received band nominatios for more awards in 2018 (emerging artist, instrumental recording).
They write great songs, their arrangements are smart and tasteful, and their groove carries you through their music. They are young, bright and friendly. I love this band formed in Boston in 2014 and, through time on the road, have developed into an original, solid "band".

Date Sunday August 4
OK, so it's not straight up Bluegrass but that is what our Sunday evening shows are all about and I fell totally for this artist at a show near Geneva last summer, taken by my deadhead friend Jean-Mi from Marseille. It was a great evening and I couldn't stop dancing. So, on the spot, I asked her to come to play at La Roche. A few email exchanges later and it was fixed. Please treat yourself to one of the greatest, laid-bare country music artists of our time.
