Open Native American Flute Circle

Friday, July 16, 6 p.m.

Redbird’s Children of Many Colors Powwow
7075 Campus Road, Moorpark, CA 93021

Join us for a relaxing evening of flute music hosted by some of southern California’s finest Native American flutists, and some of our up and coming musical talent. The flute circle is open to all flute players.

Cherokee flutist Bill Neal will MC the circle. This is a free-form, open microphone family event. Spontaneous musical collaboration is one of the thrilling parts of this gathering. It is also an excellent opportunity for those looking to purchase a flute or meet fellow musicians to spend an evening in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

The flute, like the drum, is central to many indigenous cultures throughout the world. In most cases the Native American flute is known as an instrument of love, used by a man to court the woman of his desire. Today both men and women have taken up the art of the flute.

The flute circle is accompanied by a potluck style feed, and the Native American Southern Drum Crooked Hat is usually there to offer their own songs; dinner music, Native American style.

The gathering is hosted by Redbird, a non profit Native American and environmental organization based in Simi Valley, California. A $2.00 per vehicle donation is suggested; there is no admission fee, and everyone is welcome to attend. Chairs will be provided; blankets are welcome.
