I was chosen as a finalist for the Solo Players Flute Competition at Music Echoes in Ft Walton Beach FL this year and after an amazing 3 rounds of playing against 4 other finalists, I came in 2nd place. I play with my group Branches Breath in public at festivals and events around Indianapolis about 2-3 times a month, but also in small groups with other musicians or privately. I love the people it has connected me with and the creativity it allows. I have recently acquired a couple side-blown bamboo flutes, an anasazi and a very nice Shakuhachi by Perry Yung to try and expand my wind instrument horizons. Outdoor Interests, Alpine Skiing, Hiking, Camping, White Water Rafting, and spending anytime we can doing anything out west.

What's in your collection? (Favorite makers and flutes)
I have a range of keys spanning from Sub-bass D to ultra high G# and total about 40. 3-sub basses, 1 sub bass drone, 4 branch flutes from John, Geri, Harold and Dale. Lone Crow, Brad Young, Russ V, Stilvalley, Brent Haines, Stellar, Colyn P, Coyote Oldman, Earl Tharp, pretty much make up all of my mid to high range flutes.
Alternate flutes include G# Anasazi by Coyote Oldman, 2 transverse bamboo flutes by Earl Tharp, Magen Abot E by Russ V, Shakuhachi by Perry Yung, Silver flute by Armstrong,
Hi Jason, I am just a beginner With 4 flutes, all by different makers. Unfortunately, just as I was beginning my flute journey, I had some terrible problems with my upper teeth, and had to have them all pulled. It will be a long time before my mouth is of normal shape again, and right now I can only play one of the flutes. So right now I am concentrating on creating a new concept in flute bags. It is a process called felting where you use 100% wool yarn, knit a large piece using the pattern I created, then shrink it down. The end result is a solid pice of 1/4" wool with a flap closure and a handle. I am also making my own beaded flute wraps to match the bags. At least it keeps me busy until I can start to play again. Thanks for inviting me to be your friend.

Hi! thanks for adding me, I have been well and truly bit by the flute making bug in just over 6 months I have made around 40 flutes in as many keys as I can ! but I like the contra bass flutes but unfortunately I dont have the equipment to make such large bore things so I have low C, D, E,F, mid E, F, F# in 7/8" bore and G# 1" bore right up to the teeny high G,
all this after a heart attack and bypass surgery but have to keep busy to take my mind of things LOL!!!!!!!
Glad you received the new batch of flutes safe & sound Jason, Just let me know when you need some more.
Thanks for the compliment Loretta, but you could make any flute sound wonderful! I have really enjoyed the cd`s Thanks!!! >>>-Kenny->
