Country music artist Jamey Johnson

Artist-in-Residence

Each year, the museum invites a noted artist or musician to give a series of performances in the Ford Theater. This artist or musician has a strong connection to country music or has a sense of country music's contribution in general to American culture.

For his first show, Miller chose to play with heroes and frequent collaborators. With Frisell, he played open-hearted, beautiful instrumentals, such as an achingly gorgeous rendition of “Shenandoah.” Miller has recently recorded an album with fellow guitarists Marc Ribot and Greg Leisz (with Leisz on pedal steel). “With these shows, I guess I get to do what I want, and what I love is to hear Bill Frisell play, ” Miller said of the Colorado-born, Seattle-based guitarist.

Along with band members Byron House on bass and Marco Giovino on drums, and with Frisell sitting in on guitar throughout the evening, Miller backed the McCrary Sisters on two songs, including a simmering, rhythmic take on Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” that will appear on an upcoming album that the trio (Ann, Alfrieda, and Regina) recently completed.

“It was a great day when Buddy and Julie Miller came into my life, ” Harris said. “One day I’m going to be a Miller when I grow up.” In return, Miller pointed out that Harris’s mother was in the front row, whom he described as the world’s best cook and promised someday soon he would return all the dishes of hers he has at home.

Among those in the crowd included 2008 artist-in-residence Jerry Douglas, Country Music Hall of Fame members Jim Foglesong and Jo Walker-Meador, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Duane Eddy, Americana artists Elizabeth Cook and Webb Wilder, and songwriter Paul Kennerley.

Miller’s remaining two artist-in-residence concerts are August 17 and 24 and will feature different surprise guests. Tickets are on sale at

But both are in the boonies.
One is Kansas City, Kansas. It has an amazingly vibrant art scene and a very supportive community. Rents are starting to go up as the downtown becomes more popular, but it has a serious hard working community of artists doing some very interesting, if as yet largely unrecognized work.
Night life is good, and becoming more so, again as the downtown comes back to life, and the restaurant scene is improving fast.
Another place, even farther off the map is ARoswell New Mexico. The Anderson Center for Contemporary art has an astonishing collection, and sponsors an artist in residence program that brings in 6-8 artists for a year or six months at a time, creating a revolving core of serious work-orientated artists, around which there is very huge...
