His singing was nominated for an award in 2019's MG Alba Trad Awards. Brian Miller is one of Scotland's foremost singers and guitarists, with extensive performing and recording credits, including with The Laggan and Arthur Johnstone, Swan Arcade, The Great Fife Road Show, Tom Paxton, The Singing Kettle, in Ian McCalman's production 'Far, Far from Ypres' and with his daughter Siobhan Miller.

The Shackleton Trio
Captivating songwriting and fiery tunes that combine mandolin, fiddle, guitar and banjo with powerful three part harmonies. The unmistakeable sound of The Shackleton Trio brings to life the stories of their native East Anglia, and beyond. Touring their brand new album 'Mousehold', the trio features Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin and banjo). Collectively the band draw influence from British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, whilst Georgia’s flair for sourcing largely unsung material from East Anglia keeps the band firmly rooted in their local tradition.
18th July at 8.00pm
Sing-around
Our Sing-around events are always popular, well attended and good fun. Some people sing with a guitar, banjo, concertina or unaccompanied. There are no rules, just do something when it is your turn or sit and listen if you prefer. Sometimes we have a theme, on this occasion we don't.
