The Red Road by Native American Artist Bill Miller

Artist - Author: 
Bill Miller

"This was the first music I had listened to from this artist. Trail of Freedom and Dreams of Wounded Knee are both excellent. Faith of a Child brought me to tears.

I love the way Bill mixes guitar and flute with an upbeat sound. He blends a beautiful balance of Powwow drumming with his words and music. I have since bought several more of his CD's and they are all very well composed.
