Sounds of Scotland in store at live performance
December 9, 2013 by Lisa
This weekend offers a chance for people in and around Arlington to come out and listen to a Scottish Folk specialist, Ed Miller, while they enjoy some delicious coffee and scrumptious treats.
A name readily associated with the resurgence in popularity of folk music in Scotland during the 1960s, Miller has long been known as one of his nation’s great singing exports. Originally from Edinburgh in Scotland, he has been based in Austin, Texas for some time, where he gained two graduate degrees, one in Geography and one in Folklore, from the University of Texas.
He is now a regular performer at festivals, clubs, Bobby Burns suppers, Highland Games, and as a host of workshops and lectures. To date, Miller has nine recorded CDs of Scottish Songs.
This is a fundraising performance with proceeds going to the Salvation Army. Advance ticket purchase is recommended, as space is limited.
Tickets for this event cost $15 per person in advance or $18 per person at the door. Ed Miller’s live performance will be happening this Saturday, December 14, at 7:00 pm at the Open Door Coffee House located at 6200 Windsong Drive in arlington, Texas, just down the road from Mansfield. To learn more about this performer, please visit the Songs of Scotland website or the Open Door Coffee House website, or call either organization during business hours.
