Folksinger and storyteller Adam Miller presents "Traditional Folksongs of the Winter Holidays." This popular, multi-cultural sing-along program features traditional holiday folksongs from an American English-speaking folk tradition. Well-known (and not-so-well-known) folksongs and carols for New Year’s, Hanukkah, Christmas, and the Winter Solstice. Many of these songs grew out of (and were used in) the old-time American holiday celebration — a season not of Santa Claus and tinsel trees but of homespun worship, festivity, and song.

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.
