Traditional Folk Songs of the Great Lakes at the Rochester Hills Public Library
(ROCHESTER HILLS- May 13, 2019) Folk singer Adam Miller will be at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Tuesday, May 28 to share some fascinating history and music of the Great Lakes.
Many of the folksongs center on the logging industry as well as the Great Lakes themselves, and come from rich historical beginnings. According to Miller, “Art reflects the time, and so it’s really difficult to appreciate the songs itself unless you understand the time it came from and the context.”
This concert will blend together music and history to give patrons a full understanding of where these folk songs came from and the importance they played in Great Lakes culture.
“We’re very excited to have Adam Miller her for a concert that blends music and history together to bring out patrons the best of both worlds,” said Community Relations Specialist Amanda Harrison Keighley.
The program is May 28 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room and is open to everyone with an RHPL library card. This program is geared toward adults but all ages are welcome. Please register in advance at rhpl.org.
