One of the premier autoharpists in the world, Adam Miller is a renowned American folksinger and natural-born storyteller.
Miller accompanies his rich, resonant baritone voice with lively finger-picking acoustic guitar and stunningly beautiful autoharp melodies. A masterful entertainer who never fails to get his audience singing along, he has distinguished himself as one of the great interpreters of American folksongs and folktales, and as a performer who appeals to audiences of all ages.
George Winston calls him “one of the great autoharpists and folksingers of our times.” Pete Seeger praised his “wonderful storytelling!” The Walnut Valley Festival describes his performance as, “An outstanding slice of American folksongs performed with his perfectly suited voice and tasty autoharp accompaniment.” As a concert promoter in Melbourne Beach, Florida, observed, “It will charm even the most die-hard iPod-loving kids or reluctant significant-others.”
Adam Miller began his lifelong pursuit of collecting old songs while still in grade school. An accomplished folklorist, historian, song collector, and musicologist, he has now amassed a remarkable repertoire of over 5,000 songs.
In a contemporary musical landscape peopled with singer-songwriters and their often short-lived offerings, Miller’s time-honored traditional folksongs and ballads are a breath of fresh air. Folksinger Sam Hinton praised his “impeccable taste” in selecting the right songs to sing with the right audience. Miller’s repertoire evokes a bygone time when entertainment was homemade. A master of the art of storytelling, he skillfully interweaves folksongs and the stories behind them with the elegance of a documentary filmmaker.
Traveling 70,000 miles a year, Miller performs over 200 concerts annually, from the Everglades to the Arctic Circle. Over 1.5 million American K-12 students have attended his “Singing Through History!” school assembly programs. He has performed in over 2,000 American public libraries in 48 states. He has recorded eight audio CDs.
