Gig Information

BB and Alex are heading back to the United States of Bluegrass, and on Saturday 24 April, the night before they jump on the plane, they are treating us to a farewell concert at the Auckland Bluegrass Club.

They’ve been using their Aotearoa break to work up some new material and we are going to experience exciting, top shelf American style folk and bluegrass music. You’ll recognise the classics and be enchanted with their take on pieces borrowed from other genres.

BB’s band, Mile Twelve, have earned recognition with numerous International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and her talent and hard work earned her the 2015 Freshgrass Banjo contest and the Steve Martin Banjo Prize in 2020.

BB (real name Catherine Bowness) is Kiwi, and after becoming New Zealand School of Music's first banjo student and graduate, she to America in 2012 to make a career in music. Meanwhile, Alex Rubin grew up learning the guitar in Boston, absorbing his father’s love of traditional American folk and bluegrass music. They will be returning together to Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Alex has toured extensively both at home and internationally, including performances in 49 states and a number of countries including Canada, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Estonia, Australia and New Zealand.

It’s going to be a great show and you’ll supporting some real talent as they leave to begin the task to re-establishing musical careers put on hold by Covid.
