Scottish folk singer to play at SWT Scottish folk singer Ed Miller will perform a concert at 7:30 p.m. March 19 in the Music Building Recital Hall on the campus of Southwest Texas State University. The concert is free of charge and open to the public. Miller left his native Edinburgh, Scotland, and came to the U S. in 1968 to pursue graduate studies in geography at the University of Texas at Austin. He planned to stay for a year, but almost 30 years later, he is proud to call Austin home. Miller’s career began in the Scottish pub circuit during the ’60s, a time of social unrest and the revival of folk music. Aside from the traditional ballads and standard tunes, Miller’s repertoire includes his own works, which focus on modem issues such as urban renewal, immigration, nationalism and socialism. One of the main themes reflected in Miller’s music is the notion of counteracting the romanticism that we associate with Scotland. Miller feels that this is largely due to the perspective given in recent films, such as “Bravchcart" and “Rob Roy." As a leading authority on the subject of folklore, in which he earned his doctoral degree while at UT, Miller frequently serves as a lecturer all over the world. He has also hosted a folk music show on Austin’s NPR radio station. Millar has produced lour commercial recordings and performs at coffee houses, folk festivals and other locations.    For    more information, call the Music Department at (512) 245-2651.

From the two male friends who barely survived each other in Neil Simon’s comedy, the theatre now takes on John Ford Noonan’s ftm-fllled play about two very diverse women who find themselves as incompatible next-door neighbors. It’s called “A Coupla White Chicks Sitting Around Talking." Considering that one woman is a young society matron in the plush Westchester County circles of upstate New York and the other is a down-to-earth, ex-cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys (who’s just blown in from Texas), oil and water stand a better chance of mixing. Maude, played by Cathy Claik, is contained and proper, with a regimented schedule that would make the U.S. Army look casual. Hannah Mae, on the other hand, portrayed by Joy Lindsey, is a warm, spontaneous gust of wind,A&E Briefson lap The 48th semi-annual antique show and sale is coming to the Civic Center in New Braunfels.
