Hailing from Ballymena, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, Ian Millar inherited his rich vocal tones and musical ability from the best of both sides of his family. He was an official camp-follower of the Irish Rovers, following in his father Joe Millar’s footsteps, taking to the stage and the road at an early age. When cousin Will Millar left the legendary Rovers, Ian joined Will on the road as an integral member of Will’s band, Some Mad Irishmen. Since then, Ian has toured the United States and Canada several times. He’s also toured Australia and New Zealand four times, twice as a featured soloist with the stage production of “Ireland” in 1998 and 1999. Millar’s many talents are on display on his first album, Raised On Songs And Stories, as a vocalist, musician, songwriter, composer, arranger, and producer — all duties of which are done gracefully and with a unique flair. A legacy of Celtic music has blossomed into an array of musical styles for Ian: traditional to contemporary Irish fare, folk and soft rock to country and western, classical standards, and rhythm and blues. Whether it’s a rollicking pub song or a heart song, Millar inspires strong emotions from his audience because music is his life; it’s in his soul. He’s turned his innate passion for the stage and the road into a recognized and seasoned artistry that perfectly compliments his love for tall sailing ships, the sea, and for living fancy-free. Ian Millar appears at Paddy Cassidy’s Irish Pub (2009 N. Atlantic Ave.; Cocoa Beach; 783-0810) Friday, February 27th and Saturday, February 28th.
