Songs of Woody Guthrie: American Balladeer

Songs of Woody Guthrie: American Balladeer
Sunday, April 3, 2-3:30pm
Presenter: Adam Miller
Woody Guthrie (1912-1967) wrote over 1,000 American folksongs in his lifetime – and he didn’t use an original melody for single one of them! This sing along program tells the true story of the man who wrote “This Land is Your Land,” the best known English language folksong on the planet. 
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.
