"In recent years, Bostonís Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory have added extra fire to that cityís already churning cauldron of traditional string players. Out of this spicy soup jumps Mile Twelve, a group of five accomplished bluegrass musicians who write, sing, and play like the wind. Serious players who have serious fun, Mile Twelve is a group to watch in the coming decade."

WALLIS BIRD (Thursday November 9, 2017)
- bold, frank and endearingly tender
Winner of two Irish Music Awards, Wallis Bird's expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms have been taking audiences by storm in the UK, Europe, Australia and Japan.
Every performance is characterised by a startling passion and presence that frequently leaves her breathless and her guitar strings shredded.
Her extraordinary energy left the Arts Hall audience spellbound during her last performance.
Wallis Bird’s songs combine elements of traditional folk music, blues and funk with a rock sound.
Wallis returns to Australia in November to perform at Mullum Music Festival, and later at the iconic Woodford Folk Festival. In between she’s playing selected venues along the east coast.
A string of local support acts have been signed on the tour, including former local musician Vena Klymo, who will open for Wallis at Wauchope.
