Details

The Mile Roses is a touring collaboration for three respected solo songwriters Edwina Hayes, Kate Bramley and Simon Haworth playing contemporary British folk music with a nod to Nashville.??Born out of a musical interest in both British folk and the transatlantic connections to new country and americana, this trio are fast gaining a reputation across the UK folk scene with their original songs and close harmonies, accompanied by guitars, bass, cittern, mandola, mandolin and fiddle.

From toe-tapping folk to haunting ballads this trio have toured worldwide as independent musicians but obviously have an infectious enjoyment for this new collaboration that is guaranteed to leave audiences with a smile on their faces.

Kate Bramley is a fine singer and instrumentalist, best known as fiddler and vocalist for the North-east’??and the American band, Sweetgrass.

Edwina Hayes’ beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. She has played everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall and opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison. Nanci Griffith described her as having “the sweetest voice in England”

Guitarist and singer Simon Howarth played bass with Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies from July 1998 until March 2004 touring in Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Australia, USA and Canada as well as extensively across the UK.
