Michael Miles in Concert
- Chris Spector, Midwest Record
Michael J. Miles is an electrifying concert performer whose live performances have been warmly greeted from his hometown of Chicago to the Kennedy Center in Washington and the Royal Opera Theatre in Marrakesh.
As a soloist, with an ensemble, with a string quartet or a full orchestra -- the signature is always distinctive as Michael coaxes beautiful and unexpected sounds from the banjo, guitar and a variety of unusual instruments.
Miles has carved a musical world of his own -- mixing the ancient worlds of traditional and classical music with a blues-tinged catalog of original compositions. Mix in Tin Pan Alley, jazz guitar, fingerstyle artistry, and a warm baritone voice and you have Michael Miles in Concert!
“Give the banjo to Michael J. Miles and you’ll hear a mighty soul-stirring sound.”
