January 2016 Meeting

CANCELLED: Based on the current forecast for Saturday, we’ve decided to officially cancel the meeting. We’ll follow up soon with a February date.


I hope you survived the holidays unscathed and have had a great start to the new year. To kick things off, our January meeting will be Saturday the 23rd at 2PM. This time, we’ll be at the home of Dawn Leith-Dougherty and Ed Dougherty, 359 Green Meadow Lane in Roxboro. It’s a mile or two off 15-501, way north of Durham. They have two big dogs and a cat, so if you have allergies or other issues, please be aware.

This month, we’ll be featuring the flutes of George Dyson and the music of John Huling. As always, we’ll also make lots of music. 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. If you’d like to bring a snack to share, feel free to do so.

This summer is a flute event not to be missed: The World Flute Society Convention in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It’s a 5 day event with more music, workshops, and flutes than you can imagine. Performers include Peter Phippen, Michael Graham Allen, Kevin Locke, Ron Korb, and many more. Yes, it’s one heck of a road trip, but it’s totally worth it. You can get more info at http://worldflutes.org, and I’ll be glad to answer any questions I can.

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 23rd at Dawn and Ed’s house.
