Folksinger & Storyteller Adam Miller Upcoming Performance

Join us at the Campus Martius Museum, located at 601 Second Street, Marietta, OH, on Saturday, April 19 at 2 p.m. to hear folk singer, storyteller, and autoharp virtuoso Adam Miller entertain us with folktales and songs from the past.

One of the premier autoharpists in the world, Adam Miller is a renowned American folksinger and natural-born storyteller. An accomplished folklorist, historian, musicologist, and song-collector, he has amassed a remarkable repertoire of over 5,000 songs. 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 folktales and folksongs, and as a performer who appeals to audiences of all ages.
