The Listening Room Autoharp with Adam Miller 
6 pm, Monday April 14, The Listening Room: Autoharp with Adam Miller
LEGENDARY FOLKSINGER, STORYTELLER, AND AUTOHARP VIRTUOSO
"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
Adam’s solo autoharp performance video of “Polly Swallow” has received over 4,000 viewings on YouTube. Mike Fenton’s melody was inspired by a circa 1890 studio portrait of a beautiful 18-year-old fisher girl, Polly Swallow of Church Street, in Whitby, by English photography pioneer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe:
