August 2017 Meeting

July 31, 2017

Flute Friends,

Our August meeting will be Saturday the 5th at 2PM. Catrrine Ponall, 2818 Bedford Avenue in Raleigh, near the NC State Campus. Bedford is a one way street, so you’ll need to come in on Dixie Trail, which runs between Wade Avenue and Hillsborough St.

This month, we’ll be featuring the music of Joseph Firecrow, Cheyenne recording artist who recently passed away, and the flutes of Jay Old Mouse, the current flute keeper for the Cheyenne Nation. Then we’ll do some facilitated playing activities. As always, if you have a song to share, whether it’s a traditional tune, an improv piece, or a jam with you and a few friends, we look forward to hearing it. If you just want to hang out and listen, that’s cool too.

In order to make life a little easier for all of us, I went ahead and scheduled out all meetings for 2017. Many of you have already volunteered to host these meetings and to act as our monthly facilitator for playing time, and I definitely appreciate that. Here’s the schedule listing both host and facilitator for each month:

September 9: Mara / Mara
October 7: Host needed / Facilitator needed
November 4: Jeff & Kim / Michelle
December 9: Annual holiday shindig at Jon’s house

As always, feel free to get in touch if you have any feedback regarding the flute circle. I look forward to seeing you on the 5th.
