Chestnut Branch Flutes

Creating a flute from a branch is exciting and rewarding, as I see how the wood guides me and listen to what the flute’s voice will be. Here’s a video with the four Chestnut branch flutes that I just finished making. In the video, I play two of the flutes to let you hear their […]

What’s on my plate? Branch flutes

I have a full plate of flutes with the four little branch flutes I’m working with. They are a delight to work with. Always I enjoy helping tree branches become unique flutes. Working with four flutes from the same tree has advantages. Because they are from the same kind of wood.  After working with one flute, […]

During the day-long workshop, […]

Theme of Harp Gathering: enthusiasm for music

The major theme at the Harp Gathering is sharing our enthusiasm for music. Performers at the concerts demonstrate the wide range of music genres and playing techniques. A highlight was hearing Louise Trotter play. At 92, Louise has been an inspiration to many of the harp players here. She was a guest in their college harp […]

Making Music at Leesburg Art Festival

The Leesburg Art Festival was an enjoyable event and an opportunity for me to share my flutes and kanteles. A great part of the two-day festival was the full-day live music on the stage near my display tent. I could hear flute and drum music all day. I enjoyed meeting members of the Riverwind Flute Circle and performing on […]

Night Song flutes: Tone, texture & attention to detail

Using carvings and pyrography (woodburning), I’ve created the look of hieroglyphics and have added to the look with Tiger Eye and Turquoise stones. […]
