As part of the annual Civil Rights Conference and Native American Day, Bill Miller will speak and perform at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 23 in Watkins Auditorium (Boling University Center) at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
Miller, a Munsee Mohican, won his third Grammy on Jan. 31 for Best Native American Song.
Among his many achievements are being the flute player in the movie “Pocahontas,” writing three songs on Faith Hill’s new CD, winning three Grammy Awards, serving as maestro in the Israeli Symphony and being a noted artist, flute player, guitarist, singer and songwriter among Native Americans. His many fans are stars on the country music, folk music and rock music circuits.
Appearing for an encore at UTM, Miller will captivate the audience and his music and artwork will be for sale at the event, a spokesman said.
The doors will open at 5:50 p.m., with Elizabeth Cox, an UT Martin dual enrollment student from Milan High School, performing a selection of original music prior to Miller’s performance at 6:30. The event is free to the public.
