12B Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Chester Words & Music features Margaret Miles Nov. 18 Words & Music lights up a wintry evening in Chester Thursday evening, Nov. 18, at the Coffee Station in Old Town, at 7 p.m. Admission is $3. The featured performer for the evening will be Mar- garet Miles. To say her musical style is varied may be a bit of an un- derstatement. ".Lately, I've been writing a lot of spiritual music, but some of the traditional Irish songs I perform would get me kicked out of any church," Miles said. She is currently the musi- cal director for the Center for Spiritual Living in Quin- cy, and has recently released an album of original music, "Candle in the Dark." The title song .was written and first sung for the 2009 Luminaria ceremony at Quincy's Relay for Life. "I knew what I wanted to sing about, and this song started flowing into my head," Miles said. "I was working in the backyard, and I had to keep running inside to write parts of it down." Her original songs tend to be folk-influenced, with memorable tunes and words that paint a picture. She is working on a second album of original music, including a song about Plumas County. Miles has played Celtic and American folk music for years, as a soloist and in groups. Her soaring vocals are equally well accompa- nied by autoharp, bodhran (Irish drum), or a capella. Most recently, she per- formed as a soloist at the Celtic Festival in Graeagle, and she was a member of the Whiskey Dents, a local Celtic band that played extensively in Plumas County and Reno, Nev. In addition, she has taught music and rhythm to chil- dren for several years as part of Plumas Arts' Artist in the Schools program, and has performed children's music at the Quincy Farmer's Mar- ket. Miles will share original and traditional Celtic songs at Words & Music in Chester. Calling all local talent: Open stage will follow the featured artist set. All aspir- ing poets, musicians, story- tellers, actors or performers are invited to sign up at the door for Open Stage. Words & Music is an acoustic music and spoken word program which has been sponsored and facilitat- ed by Plumas Arts since 1989. The Plumas County Board of Supervisors has annually designated Plumas Arts to serve as the local representa- tive to the California Arts Council's State-Local Part- nership Program. Incorpo- rated in 1981 as a not-for- profit agency, Plumas Arts provides the region with a variety of cultural and edu- cational programs that en- hance both the soul of the creative arts and the local economy.
