The Salado Public Library is partnering with the Salado Museum and College Park to offer a special presentation on Friday of the 56th annual Scottish Gathering and Highland Games weekend (November 10-12). Scottish singer and folklorist, Ed Miller, will present a one-hour lecture in word and song on Scotland’s two largest cities, Friday, Nov. 10, 1:00 pm, at the library, 1151 N. Main. The event is free and open to the public.

Ed Miller is a native of Edinburgh, Scotland, who came to Texas as a young man and has made Austin his home. He holds a graduate degree in Folklore and Geography from the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to having recorded nine CDs of Scottish songs, he is a teacher, speaker, lecturer, radio host and leader of historical tours of Scotland.

Mr. Miller’s one-hour presentation, Edinburgh and Glasgow in Song, Literature and Humor, explores the juxtaposition of Scotland’s two main cities. Though only 48 miles apart, their respective images and histories could hardly be more different. Using songs, quotations from writers as varied as Robert Louis Stevenson and Ian Rankin, and jokes heard over the years, Mr. Miller will provide an entertaining presentation on the two cities that comprise over half of the Scottish population.
