Clearwater presents “From Senegal to Seeger: Stories of the American Banjo,” Michael J. Miles’ acclaimed one-man show featuring musical and written works of Pete Seeger, Carl Sandburg, Woody Guthrie, Walt Whitman, Johann Sebastian Bach, Mark Twain and others.

In association with the Old Town music school in Chicago, Michael is returning the favor for Pete’s many years of support for the music, activism and community of world-wide and history-spanning musical traditions.

Michael J. Miles is a master banjoist, guitarist, orchestral composer, author of numerous theatrical works combining music and history, and acclaimed music educator. Michael puts his musical stamp all over the walls of the possible and the improbable. Alone in concert or with his signature stage production, “From Senegal To Seeger,” he has had standing ovations on four continents.

But give him a string quartet, a jazz band, an orchestra, a choir and Michael has created new music bringing critical rave and professional respect from musical legends such as Pete Seeger, Dave Brubeck, Bela Fleck, Janos Starker, Corky Siegel and many more.

And in a world poisoned by international heartache, Michael has reached across borders with music as the powerful and wordless weapon of respect. For his work in Morocco, Lebanon and Turkey, Michael has been heralded by the US State Department on three occasions for his powerful and enduring musical diplomacy.
