Michael Miles
Michael Miles
Michael J. Miles is a master banjoist, guitarist, orchestral composer, author of numerous theatrical works combining music and history, and acclaimed music educator.

"Genius...in a musician's paradise, the viral videos would be artists like Michael J. Miles playing his banjo." - Lyn Brehmer, WXRT

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—Pete Seeger, Dave Brubeck, Bela Fleck, Janos Starker, Corky Siegel—and there are more..

"This is enough to make me want to learn the banjo all over again." - Pete Seeger

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 Dept on three occasions for his powerful and enduring musical diplomacy.

“I commend you for your hard work as an educator, and send my best wishes."

- President Bill Clinton
