Event Description

Nationally renowned master of Celtic music Brian Miller delves deep into Midwestern history to find the unique music of Irish and Scottish lumberjacks who worked in his home state in the 1800s. Brian sings songs that once rang through lumber camp bunkhouses where Irish and Scottish men were relied on to entertain the men during the evening hours. Old world ballads mix with colorful local lore and creative arrangements, using voice, guitar and a variety of unusual folk instruments to bring this forgotten folk music to life.

In concert, Brian teams up with Milwaukee musician Randy Gosa. Randy adds his virtuosic mandolin, guitar and tenor banjo playing to the mix to fire up the old bunkhouse dance tunes and complete the package for a memorable program of top-notch Celtic music with a distinct Midwestern story. In between the songs, Brian draws on four years of extensive research to describe the lives of these singing lumberjacks and the fascinating stories behind their songs.

Come hear this concert in the beautiful courtyard of Flagstaff's own logging family, the Riordans.
