Pacific Northwest folksinger, storyteller and autoharp virtuoso Adam Miller has amassed a collection of 5,000 traditional folk tunes during a 20-year career in sharing history through story and song.

Just how many he will be able to unveil in a single and singular performance, Sunday, Aug. 3, at San Juan Island Library, remains to be seen. But get there early, there’s sure to be a crowd. Entitled “Singing Through History,” the show starts at 6 p.m.; doors open at 5:45 p.m.

A 21-century troubadour, traveling 70,000 miles or more each year, Miller traces the history of America through an entertaining as well as interactive performance of stories and song that feature inspiring autoharp melodies and a rich, distinctive baritone that’s all his own.
