Norah Rendell (flute), Brian Miller (guitar)
Vancouver singer and flute player Norah Rendell and Minnesotan guitarist Brian Miller met while studying Irish traditional music at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance UL. The Munster Express wrote that their music "brings sunlight into your heart and set your feet a dancing." Since returning to North America, their debut album, Wait There Pretty One, has earned Norah a nomination for Canadian Traditional Singer of the Year and they are fast becoming known as two of the best young interpreters of traditional music the other side of the Atlantic. Norah has performed at venues and festivals around the globe including England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, and North America as lead vocalist with Limerick band, The Outside Track. Esteemed Irish music critic Earle Hitchner writes that "the backing of [Brian] Miller on guitar flexes not just muscle but a fully complementary style." Also an accomplished singer and flute player, Miller began playing Irish music at high-school in Bemidji, Minnesota. He has been a highly visible character in the Twin Cities Irish music scene since 1998.
