Scooter Muse has his roots in Bluegrass Music and has been privileged to win ten State of Alabama & Tennessee Valley Championship titles for 5 String and Old Time Banjo. Scooter began to tap into the incredible world of Celtic Music about 25 years ago. After learning a flood of traditional jigs and reels on the banjo he began to explore the Celtic domain of open tunings for the guitar and from 1994 till 2002 was founder and leader of one of the country’s finest Celtic bands, The Full Moon Ensemble, touring the US, Canada and Scotland. After the FME went their separate ways in December of 2002, Scooter was proud to join Henri’s Notions after being a big fan of the band for many years! The Notions have recorded two CDs during his time with the band, “John O’ Dreams” and “Trip to the Cottage”.
In 2005 he released his first solo guitar CD, “Saddell Abbey” featuring 14 tracks of music. The CD includes 12 original compositions for acoustic guitar including music set to the poetry of Robert Burns, and 3 songs by the Full Moon Ensemble’s Allison King and Jil Chambless of Henri’s Notions.
2011 marked the release of “The Laverock Sang”- a duo recording with Jil Chambless.
Alabama native Jil Chambless has played an active role in the Celtic music scene for more than 25 years. As singer and flute and whistle player, Jil has completed many recording projects and performed at Celtic festivals and concerts across the US as well as in Canada, Scotland, and Israel with the band Henri’s Notions, guitarist Scooter Muse, singer Ed Miller, fiddler John Taylor, the band Vulcan Eejits!, the John Whelan Trio, the Mairtin De Cogain Project, and others. Jil brings to any audience a wonderful listening experience from haunting ballads and upbeat songs to toe-tapping tunes with a smooth delivery that never fails to bring both smiles and tears in every performance.
The duo will be performing on Friday, January 30, 2015 at 7:30pm. The suggested donation is $20 per person. For more information or to make a reservation, please see our about page. Seating is limited.
