Performing Arts: Adam Miller
Renowned American folksinger Adam Miller will perform his folk music program Singing Through History! Wednesday, January 10, 1-2pm.
A resident of the Pacific Coast of Oregon, Adam Miller is one of the finest autoharpists in the world. He is a renowned American folksinger and natural-born storyteller. He travels 70,000 miles a year and has performed in concert halls from the Everglades to the Arctic Circle.
Adam is mostly self-taught, and learns just about everything by ear. He began his lifelong pursuit of collecting old songs while still in grade school. Armed with an audio-graphic memory and an uncommonly good ear for melody, his childhood ambition was to learn every song he heard. Now he is a walking encyclopedia of American history and American folksongs. An accomplished folklorist and song collector, he has amassed a remarkable repertoire of over 5,000 songs.
