MACA Presents Scott Miller at Hiwassee College

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Monroe Area Council for the Arts (MACA) will present Scott Miller & The Commonwealth Ladies Auxiliary on Friday, November 6, at 7:30 p.m. at Hiwassee College in Madisonville.

Ever since Steve Earle declared Miller a “world-class” songwriter, signing him and his former band The V-Roys to his record label E-Squared and producing two bedrock Americana albums, Miller has been known as a writer’s writer. Even on the next four albums Miller recorded and released on Sugar Hill Records, Miller’s songwriting remained genuinely thoughtful, for the most part regional and history based, but always cloaked in what one New York Times reviewer called an “epic vernacular.” In other words, he wrote big. Miller’s most recent album, Big, Big World, melds Miller’s and Doug Lancio’s respective gifts of words and music. Their mutual influences of southern rock, country, and bluegrass can be heard throughout with a wink and a nod to the sound of ‘70s songwriters like Neil Young and Terry Jacks.

Miller will be accompanied by the The Commonwealth Ladies Auxiliary: Rayna Gellert on fiddle and Bryn Davies on bass.

Miller is appearing as part of MACA’s 2015-2016 Performance Series. For information about MACA events or to purchase tickets online, visit www.monroearts.com.
