[ARCHIVED] Folksongs of the First World War with American Folksinger Adam Miller at Kearney Public Library

Join us at the Kearney Public Library, Thursday, April 27 at 7:00 p.m. for an evening with Adam Miller and the songs of World War One.  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. 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. 

The library is located at 2020 1st Avenue.
