The Mile Roses  Kari Macleod, Kate Bramley and Simon Haworth  are playing at Crail Folk Club in Crail Town Hall on November 8.

Born out of a musical interest in both British folk and the transatlantic connections to new country and Americana, Mile Roses are now fast gaining a reputation across the UK folk scene.

Their original songs and close three-part harmonies are accompanied by guitars, fretless bass, cittern, mandolin and fiddles.

Kate Bramley, Simon Haworth and Kari Macleod are three singer/songwriters with eclectic and diverse roots, yet somehow they seamlessly come together to create an utterly original and joyful sound.
