Miller*Crossan are an Argyll-based blues roots duo playing both traditional blues material and original songs.
The duo, who are currently working on an album of original songs for release in the Autumn, have played at Fynefest, the Girvan Folk Festival, the Crabble Corn Mill Ale Festival (Dover), Hogmanay on Iona and a number of outdoor community events in Argyll.
Robin Miller, from Islay, previously played in the Scottish based International collective Zuba, who released their ‘Allez!’ album in 2005 to great acclaim (BBC Radio Two’s Bob Harris called it “brilliant” and it won African Album of the year at the JPF Awards).
As Miller*Crossan, Robin and Andy Crossan bring links to the Hebrides (Andy previously lived on Lismore) into their original blues based material as well as a unique, harmony laden slant to some blues classics.
As well as their current work, Miller*Crossan have written songs and created videos for the charities Cycling without Age Scotland (the song ‘Cycling Without Age’ has been viewed over 30,000 times and shared across the world) and Cowal Elderly Befrienders (‘Raining In Dunoon’ helped raise £2,000 and is a regular choice on Dunoon Community Radio’s playlists).
With their original sound – finger-picked guitar and percussive Cajon underneath a harmony vocal blend, often accompanied by upright bass – Miller*Crossan are already proving a very popular draw in Argyll.
With the upcoming release of their debut album, they are sure to widen their appeal.
