CANCELLED — Adam Miller: Folksongs of the First World War
The library is pleased to welcome back Adam Miller, Legendary Folksinger, Storyteller, and Autoharp Virtuoso, for a performance at the library on Sunday, May 17 at 2:00 P.M.
Seventy million military personnel participated in the First World War (1914-1918), the so-called “War to End All Wars.” Many of the songs of this war have become part of the English-language oral tradition.
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.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit the library’s website at www.marshalltownlibrary.org or call the library’s Information Desk at 641-754-5738 ext. 4.
