We are super excited to invite you to a book release/signing and in-store performance with Michael Miles. His newly released songbook Folk Songs for Banjo is published by Hal Leonard and features 40 songs arranged for clawhammer banjo including classic hits like "John Henry," "Man of Constant Sorrow," and "Midnight Special." Miles will be on hand to play a few songs from the book and sign copies. Michael J. Miles is regarded as one of America's most inventive clawhammer banjo players. Chicago Tribune critic Howard Reich said that, "Everything Miles plays is worth savoring. Pete Seeger described his playing as ?one of the most beautiful I've heard...this is enough to make me want to learn the banjo all over again."
Please Join us for what promises to be an educational evening of banjo tunes and fun.
