Wisconsin Country Music Minute: Bill Miller

[acoustic guitar music] – Country music is
a wondrously diverse
body of music, and nowhere
is that diversity
more strongly expressed than in the music
of Wisconsin. * Bill Miller
was born on a reservation in Shawano, Wisconsin as a member of
the Stockbridge-Munsee tribe. Throughout his career, he has performed both
mainline country music and the music of his Native
American heritage. As a Native American flute
player and a guitar player and as a singer, he’s won
three Grammy Awards. His music is suffused with
his passion for social justice, the love of his people’s
heritage, and his pride in being
a Christian and an American. [flute music]
