Ed Miller "Songs of Scotland" at WCT
A native of Edinburgh, Ed Miller first came to the USA for "a year or so" to do graduate work at the University of Texas. Now, over 40 years later, he is still based in Austin and travels throughout North America entertaining and educating audiences with his wonderful songs and droll stories.
Although he did gain a PhD in Folklore from UT, and still hosts 2 popular folk music shows on KUTX-FM, he has moved from university life to being a fulltime performer. Over the past 30 years, he has established himself as one of Scotland's finest singing exports, and is in great demand to perform at concerts, folk clubs, coffeehouses, Celtic festivals, Burns Suppers and Highland Games all over the country.

In recent years, he has expanded his activities into leading folksong tours to Scotland to meet the singers and hear the songs "on location."(see the 'Folksong Tours' section of his web page)
If you are looking for nostalgic, Brigadoonish schlock, this is not your man; but if you like good songs sung well, with a healthy mixture of realism and humor, you've come to the right place. He first learned his craft in the pubs and clubs of Edinburgh during the folk revival of the 1960's, and his repertoire shows the width of that movement. From old traditional ballads and the timeless songs of Robert Burns, to contemporary songs of urban change, emigration, nationalism and humor, a performance by Ed Miller gives a real taste of Scotland, and shows his continuing love for his homeland. Don't be surprised, however, if he draws musical connections between the old country and his adopted home in Texas.
Reviews of Miller's performances often use words such as "flawless," "compelling," or "refreshing," while his voice has been described as being "as smooth and satisfying as a really good single malt whisky."
He has 9 CD's to his credit, the most recent of which is the brand new "Come awa wi Me." His earlier "Lyrics of Gold," a collection of Burns songs, was featured in Sing Out magazine as one of the four best Robert Burns CD's of recent times.
