Adam Miller’s folksongs are the songs of America’s heritage: a window into the soul of our nation in its youth. Throughout his long career, he has documented and kept alive the thousands of songs and stories collected in his travels. 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. His numerous appearances at the California Traditional Music Society’s Summer Solstice Festival, the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival, the Tumbleweed Music Festival, and the Kentucky Music Weekend have made him a national favorite.

“As educational and informative as he is entertaining, Adam Miller holds his audiences spellbound without a lot of trappings. It is just him, his autoharp and guitar, and his signature hat.  He began collecting folksongs as a young boy, and his scholarship on that subject is much in evidence as he spins his yarns, then sings pieces of Americana, some obscure and rarely heard, some very familiar.”
