Brian Miller's Minnesota Lumberjack Songs: Irish and Scottish Music from the Northwoods with Guest Performer Randy Gosa.

Come celebrate the music of CIM instructor Brian Miller's first solo CD "Minnesota Lumberjack Songs!" Brian has spent the last 3 years researching this forgotten branch of traditional music with strong connections to the Irish Street Ballad singing tradition and its history in Minnesota. He has unearthed some rare gems that give a glimpse at the lives of some our state's earliest Irish and Scottish settlers.Brian Miller's Minnesota Lumberjack Songs: Irish and Scottish Music from the Northwoods with Guest Performer Randy Gosa.

Nationally renowned musician Brian Miller (Bua, Two Tap Trio) sings songs that once rang through the bunkhouses of Minnesotan lumber camps from Bayport to Bemidji. Old world ballads mix with colorful local lore and creative arrangements, using voice, guitar, bouzouki, harmonium, whistle, and Irish flute.

All of this may be why Brian is, according to Buzzfeed, the hippest thing in the entire US. Or maybe it's the shirt.
