Sometimes, do you wonder if the undercurrent of a towns’ vibe calls out to artists and individuals who have the same kind of feel to them? Take for example the Ben Miller Band from Joplin, Missouri. We caught up with them during their first time in Asheville when they were performing at The Grey Eagle in the River Arts District.
This talented trio combines bluegrass, Delta blues, and the soul of Appalachia mountain music to make something hauntingly beautiful. It always surprises us when bands like this hail from other areas, as you would have expected them to have been born and raised right here in Western North Carolina. 
Currently on tour in Europe, Ben Miller Band is thrilling crowds all over with their unique blend of honesty and bluegrass. We had a blast getting to know this unique trio, and we think you will enjoy them as well. 
Ben, Scott, and Doug did an acoustic set with us before their show. Check out this little gem they call Twinkle Toes.
