Adam Miller-Folksinger, Storyteller, and Autoharp Virtuoso
6:00 PM Wednesday, April 17

"I have always had a great interest in how folksongs travel through history,
and how history travels through folksongs."
- Adam Miller

One of the premier autoharpists in the world, Adam Miller is a renowned American folk singer and natural-born storyteller. An accomplished folklorist, historian, and song-collector, he has amassed an impressive repertoire of over 5,000 songs. He accompanies his rich, resonant baritone voice with lively fingerpicking acoustic guitar and stunningly beautiful autoharp melodies. In a contemporary musical landscape peopled with singer/songwriters and their often short-lived offerings, his time-honored traditional folksongs and ballads are a breath of fresh air. A masterful entertainer who never fails to get his audience singing along, he has distinguished himself as one of the great interpreters of American folktales and folksongs, and as a performer who appeals to audiences of all ages.

"One of the great autoharpists and folksingers of our times."
- George Winston
