For more than 25 years, Alabama natives Jil Chambless and Scooter Muse have been performing the music of Scotland, Ireland and early America with various ensembles in a wide variety of venues, from simple house concerts to festivals and concert halls. Jil and Scooter have been fortunate to work along- side many of the finest artists in Celtic music, resulting in many spontaneous collaborations.

As singer and flute and whistle player, Jil Chambless has performed across the US as well as in Cana- da, Scotland, and Israel with the band Henri’s Notions, Chambless & Muse, Scottish singer Ed Miller, Scottish fiddler John Taylor, the band Vul-can Eejits!, The Mairtin deCogain Project, the
John Whelan Trio, the Vogt Family Contra Band, and others. In 2009, Jil released her first solo CD, The Ladies Go Danc- ing, produced by the legendary Brian McNeill. Jil brings to any audience a won- derful listening experience from haunting ballads to upbeat songs with a smooth deliv- ery that never fails to bring both smiles and tears in each and every performance.

Although Scooter Muse has his roots in Bluegrass and is an award-winning 5-string banjo player, in the late 1980s he moved into the world of Celtic guitar and then founded the band Full Moon Ensemble, performing for 8 years across the US and in Scotland before joining Henri’s Notions in 2003. Scooter’s first solo recording of original guitar in- strumentals, Saddell Abbey (2005), was purchased by the Scottish Tourist Board in Kintyre. The Sad- dell Abbey Trust of Scotland calls the recording, “...a haunting and beautiful piece of music.”

In 2010, Jil and Scooter began performing as a duo to promote their individual solo projects, playing a variety of venues from small house concerts to major Celtic festivals. Since then they have released three CDs as a duo, The Laverock Sang (2011), Passing Tales & Glories (2014), and The Lang Awa’ Ships (2017). They also released a CD with Scottish fiddler John Taylor, Live @ NTIF (2016).
