A well respected figure on the Scottish traditional music scene, Brian has been playing music since he was a young boy and his instrument of choice was the guitar. In the early 70s, while at Glasgow University, he joined the 'Laggan', played professionally with 'Swan Arcade' and even before that used to play regularly with the great Fife Road Show which featured many other fine singers and musicians.
After that he returned to Edinburgh and played with fiddler Charlie Sloane. He has also been known to appear with those legends of good taste and anarchy, 'The Vindscreen Vipers'. He became a member of the dance band 'The Occasionals', and has always been in great demand as a session musician - once standing in for Battlefield Band at the Cropredy Festival in the late 80's when Alistair Russell had injured his hand.
In recent years Brian has started to present 'Diamond Folk', an excellent folk radio program, which airs on Sunday evenings on Midlothian's Black Diamond FM
Carrying on the family musical tradition, Brian's daughter Siobhan Miller has emerged onto the Scottish music scene as a superb singer and has twice been awarded 'Scots Singer of the Year' at the prestigious Scots Trad Music Awards.
Brian Miller has appeared on several Temple Records releases; you can find a list of them here.
