Three Mile Stone is Marla Fibish, Erin Shrader, and Richard Mandel. Three Mile Stone serves up traditional Irish music with lift, drive, and sparkle. On their debut album, produced by Grammy-nominated guitar virtuoso/producer John Doyle, tight mandolin and fiddle duets with driving guitar backup give way to poignant airs, traditional songs, or poems set to breathtaking melodies by Marla. Their signature sound is all strings: fiddle, mandolin and guitar, with infectious playing, and inventive tune and song arrangements, in which any instrument might take the melody or play backup. Their repertoire includes familiar tunes and odd ones, a melding of Erin, Marla, and Richard’s repertoire across the decades and the miles. Driving reels, lively jigs, and catchy polkas from Ireland, not to mention a smattering of Quebequois and other styles, come together with a sound all their own.
