TAHLEQUAH – Northeastern State University will host “A Scottish Evening with Ed Miller” on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the NSU Playhouse.
Ed Miller has been hailed as one of the finest singers to come out of the Scottish Folksong Revival and one of Scotland’s best singing exports. Originally from Edinburgh, he is now based in Austin, Texas, where he gained graduate degrees in Folklore and Geography at the University of Texas.
A product of the ‘60s and ‘70s folk revival in Britain, he is blessed with a voice “as smooth and satisfying as a good single malt whisky.” His repertoire covers the whole spectrum of Scottish folk music, from old ballads and songs of Robert Burns to more recent songs that adding to the huge store of Scots songs.
For over 35 years, Miller has been one of the co-hosts of the popular and long-running folk music show “Folkways,” on Austin’s KUT-FM.
