Ed Miller has been hailed as “one of the finest singers to come out of the Scottish Folksong Revival” and as “one of Scotland’s best singing exports.” Originally from Edinburgh, he has for many years been based in Austin, Texas, where he earned graduate degrees in Folklore and Geography at the University of Texas.  In addition to having recorded 9 CDs of Scottish songs, Ed is a tour leader, speaker, and teacher.  He also currently hosts “Across the Pond” on Austin’s Sun Radio.
