LITTLE FALLS -- Jim Miller will open the House Concert series Friday, Oct. 6, at Jerry's Supper Club in Little Falls.
The Great River Arts Association recently took on the commitment to help sponsor the Little Falls House Concert series. This concert marks the first in the new partnership and the first concert held at Jerry's Supper Club.
The evening will start with a 7 p.m. social and performance time is set for 7:30 p.m. The House Concert series will feature at least one artist a month to help meet the demands for more folk, blues and jazz music.
Miller comes from the Bemidji area. He has been performing solo concerts since the "coffeehouse movement of the '60s." His music crosses many styles, including rock blues, bluegrass, country and he even had a stint with a jugband.
He is adept at playing the fiddle, guitar and harmonica and has made numerous recordings throughout the years. Miller has also been asked to score many theater and radio projects.
As reported, Miller "stubbornly continues to pursue a solo career; a daunting task considering the corporate monolith of the music industry and its routine indifference to paunchy, 50-something, white, gray-haired male, socialist-libertarians who are predisposed to occasionally splatter paintballs of derision onto its shiny surface."
Tickets to see Miller are $7 for adults and $3 for children under 12. They can be purchased at the door.
Upcoming artists include The Granary Girls, Ted Fyder, Rena Haus, Blanche Evridge, Paul Imholte, Peter Ostrouschko, Dean Magraw and an Irish performer, Laura MacKenzie, in March.
