Roger Miller’s music given new life at Columbia City Theater | Concert review

It might have been a bit bizarre at first, but Hearth Music’s Roger Miller tribute night at Columbia City Theater Saturday was more lecture series than country show — and that wasn’t a bad thing.

Hosted by Iaan Hughes of KBCS, who has forgotten more about Miller than most of the packed house probably knew coming in, the evening was a solid mix of old footage and photos, Hughes’ commentary and over a dozen bands each playing two Miller songs.

Some acts, like bluegrass upstarts the Warren G. Hardings, did a fine job of combining Miller’s music with their own flavor, while Dean Johnson used his rustic warble to effectively reproduce “My Uncle Used to Love Me But She Died” and “My Pillow.”

Most people know Roger Miller as Alan-A-Dale, the minstrel rooster from the animated version of “Robin Hood,” even if they’re not aware of his work as a songwriter and country artist.

That’s a shame, and one a diverse lineup of local musicians hopes to correct with a tribute night for Miller this Saturday at Columbia City Theater. Cahalen Morrison and Country Hammer, Annie Ford Band and Low Hums head a stellar group that also includes gutsy folk singer Pepper Proud and bluegrass attitude from The Warren G. Hardings.
