If you have ever enjoyed Ed Miller as a performer, how about spending 10 days traveling Scotland with him as he shares his friends, music, humor and knowledge with you “on location” in his homeland.

Imagine hearing Border ballads in a 16th century tower, hearing Iain Fraser’s fiddle music in the Border hills; learning Gaelic songs from Margaret Bennett, singing sea songs in a fishing village or farming songs in an Angus bothy; joining in a pub session; enjoying Robin Laing’s songs of love and whisky; exploring the pubs, museums and shops of Edinburgh; or following the footsteps of Robert Burns. These are the kind of experiences Ed brings you on these very personal folksong tours.

Originally from Edinburgh, Ed has lived for several decades in Austin TX. He can, therefore, see his homeland from both a Scottish and American perspective. As a singer, folklorist (PhD), geographer (MA), radio host and amiable character with an infectious love and knowledge of Scotland, he is the perfect guide for such a tour.

The basic aim of these tours is to give folk song enthusiasts the chance to enjoy and learn about Scotland through experiencing its music and landscape. You’ll meet and hear singers and musicians on their home ground, visit the contexts from which the songs and music arose and enjoy informal talks and evening concerts.

We will stay in high quality hotels with wonderful food and will travel by luxury coach with an experienced driver and a blue-ribbon Tourist Board-approved guide.

Ed, guide Charles Hunter and driver Ian Cowie make a great & entertaining team – this will be their 21st year working together.

The cost for this 2023 tour is $3500 per person based on single occupancy. This price includes all hotels and ground transportation in Scotland, all breakfasts &  dinners, performers’ fees and entrance to Historic Scotland sites. It does not include airfare, single room supplement ($700), lunches and tips for driver and guide.

Due to the exclusive nature of these tours, reservations will be limited to 35 people.
