11/17/2014 - Adam Miller, Folk Concert

ELLENSBURG: EAT, PLAY, STAY! - Sat, 2014-11-15 20:00
"Folksongs travel through history. History travels through folksongs." - Adam Miller One of the premier autoharpists in the world, Adam Miller is a renowned American folksinger 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.
