Ed Miller & Rich Brotherton Perform @ The Dog & Duck Pub for St. Patty's Day During SXSW
KUT’s Ed Miller is a staple at the Dog & Duck pub’s infamous St. Patty’s Day Celebration. The deceptively quiet pub right off campus transforms it’s parking lot into a boisterous venue in and of itself featuring artists such as Miller and Brotherton along with KUT favorites such as Rosie Flores & John D. Graham. Food and beer stations litter the lot’s perimeter and you can score some pretty fantastic St. Patty’s day swag while celebrating the holiday. I asked Ed to tell me a little bit about his performances with Brotherton.
“I first met Rich Brotherton in the early 1980′s when he had a band called Finn McCool…he already had a great love for and knowledge of Irish music; so it was no problem for him to back up my singing of Scots songs. He is one of the best musicians I’ve ever met; so I was delighted whenever we had a chance to play together. Over the years, he’s become a close friend and has played on and produced/arranged/engineered all my recordings. Nowadays, he is so busy playing in the Robert Earl Keen band that we seldom get to play together; but he always keeps St Patrick’s Day free so we can do our once-a-year-Irish repertoire. The Dog & Duck set is the rowdiest, madhouse of a gig I do all year and I certainly couldn’t do it without
