ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The most recent CD from one of the best interpreters of Scottish songs, both old and new. Originally from Edinburgh, Miller has lived the 2nd half of his life in Austin TX and travels USA bringing his strong, satisfying voice, droll humor and great taste in songs to festivals, clubs and Highland Games.
As with previous recordings, this CD is produced and played on by musician par excellence Rich Brotherton, along with great contributions from the likes of Brian McNeill on fiddle; E.J.Jones on pipes and whistles; and Karine Polwart & Jil Chambless on harmony vocals.
It's a real treat !

The harmonies are terrific!
I bought this CD just for the song "The Hills of Home", but I enjoy most of the songs, especially the ones with harmony.

Another exceptional CD
Ed Miller is a Scottish singer/songwriter who produces great music, great stories, has great friends (some of the most famous in the Celtic vocal tradition), and a wonderful Scottish sense of humor. Unfortunately for us, he and other Celtic vocal performers seem to be a disappearing breed. The "vocal" tradition seems to be getting lost as most of the new young singers belong to "traditional" bands. The number of young, new traditional Celtic music bands (including the "Celtic rock" bands) is wonderful, but the passing of Tommy Makem, and the present ages of so many Celtic troubadours makes it alarmingly clear that there are few replacements on the horizon. This will eventually mean that the music and folklore of the songs will ultimately result in great losses of the traditions that are kept alive by the likes of Ed Miller, Brian McNeill, Davy Steele, Ian MacIntosh, Andy M. Stewart, Seamus Kennedy, Jim Malcolm, Tom Sweeney, and others who are products of the "house hooleys" and ceilidhs.

Ed is a wonderful example of the vocal tradition that means so much to the Celtic heritage and history. His wonderful voice as well as his treatment of the the old and new folksongs (many of which he has authored himself) is inspiring to those who love the music. And while he takes the music very seriously, his humor and wit make his performances all the more inviting. The stories that he tells, while sometimes funny are also researched (Ed holds a PhD in folklore) and very interesting. An evening with Ed, whether just listening to one of his seven CD's or at a live performance is always rewarding.

This review is applicable to each of Ed's seven CD's. If you buy one, you will probably want them all as each one is a super addition to your collection. Most importantly, support for Ed and his counterparts helps to support the vocal tradition at a time that is critical to it's survival. Enjoy and support this terrific artist.

Ed,
I'm loving every selection. "The Yew Tree" particularly takes me back to last summer's great trip.

Ed Miller pleases again
Ed shows that it is possible to continue to grow as an artist and contemporary interpretor of classical folksong without bowing at all to any pressure to recast his music.
Ed has released his best yet, with the help of log-time collaborators Rich Brotherton and Brian McNeill and a wonderful duet with Karine Polwart, late of Malinky, but now performing as a soloist. Tops for me must be Ed's superb interpretation of Mary Hamilton - although I have known this song well for forty years, this version is like hearing it for the first time again!
