We reviewed Siobhan Millers latest album ‘Strata’ back in March so it was great to be able to catch her live at the Blue Lamp in Aberdeen as part of the Silver City Stramash festival. Drawing mainly on songs from ‘Strata’ Miller and her rather excellent band thoroughly entertained the full house from start to finish. Kicking off with, ‘Banks of Newfoundland,’ the singers captivating voice filling the venue beautifully. An early highlight was a wonderful version of ‘Green Grow the Rashes’ with Miller proving that Burns is not just for January.
After a short break Miller returned to the stage to deliver a rousing version of Ed Pickford’s ‘Pound a Week Rise.’ Delivered with passion and integrity it was one of the standout moments of the evening. ‘Aged and Mellow’ saw Miller in playful mood, the sultry tongue in cheek style raising many a smile throughout the room. Dylan cover ‘One too Many Mornings’ was a joy and proof that choosing it as the lead single from the album was a wise choice. Miller closed proceedings with ‘TheRamblin’ Rover’, a suitably upbeat end to what had been a very satisfying set.
