About the Event
Bill Miller comes to Threshold’s AUTUMN SESSIONS: AMERICANA FOLK TRADITIONS, in honor of Native American Awareness Month.
Bill Miller is an award-winning Native American recording artist, performer, songwriter, activist, painter, and world-class native flute player. He has long been one of the most admired figures in the Native American arts and activist arenas, respectively, and beyond – a voice for the voiceless, a link between two great and clashing civilizations. A Mohican Indian from northern Wisconsin, Miller grew up amid the streams and woodlands of the reservation (his tribe is properly called Mahicanuk, which means “People From Where The Waters Are Never Still”). For over 30 years, Bill Miller's music has amplified the whispers of Native peoples' hearts, while bridging cultures around the world.
Extending our arms in welcome to all, Threshold is especially honored to host Bill during this month of awareness, bringing attention to the beauty, power and wisdom of the Native American traditions that we can all access through Bill Miller’s extraordinary music and storytelling.
Awesome food and beverages will be available for purchase. Enjoy meeting old and new friends before the show and during intermission.
A heartfelt thanks to our sponsors:
