“Folksongs travel through History.
History travels through Folksongs.”

An artist whose kind has dwindled to an endangered species, Adam Miller is an old-school American troubadour and an award-winning storyteller. Skillfully interweaving folksongs and the stories behind them with the elegance of a documentary filmmaker, he is recognized as one of the great interpreters of traditional American folksongs and as a storyteller par excellence. He’s a masterful entertainer who never fails to get his audience singing along. And he is that rare performer who appeals to audiences of all ages.
