Award-winning Native American recording artist, performer, songwriter, activist, painter, and world-class flute player will be in concert at Grace Episcopal Church on Friday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m., the church announced on Monday.
A Mohican Indian from northern Wisconsin, Miller will bring the audience on a compelling spiritual journey through song, according to a press release from Grace Episcopal. Miller has produced more than a dozen albums, earned three GRAMMY awards and numerous Native American Music Awards & Association (NAMA) awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award. Miller has also led the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra.
Miller has written songs with Nancy Griffith, Peter Rowan and Kim Carnes, and shared the bill with such diverse artists as Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder, the BoDeans, Richie Havens and Arlo Guthrie. He got his big break when Tori Amos asked him to be her opening act on the “Under the Pink” U.S. and Canadian tour in 1994.
Grace Episcopal Church is located on the Capitol Square in downtown Madison. A $20 per person donation is suggested for the performance with proceeds going to the artist and the Grace Episcopal Church Mission and Outreach Program.
