House Concert

Last weekend Anne and I attended a house concert up here in the mountains featuring Ed Miller and John Taylor. These are traditional Scottish musicians (Miller plays guitar, Taylor plays fiddle) and it was a wonderful show. Seriously, these are some of the best Scottish musicians out there. Previous house concerts have featured Brian McNeil as well, and if you follow Scottish music you know who these people are.

My neighborhood is lucky to have someone hosting such shows, and clearly the musicians love to play here. If you've got a similar thing happening in your neighborhood you should definitely take advantage of it. An intimate audience of 50 for a couple of fantastic musicians in an intimate setting simply cannot be beat.
