Native American Courting Flutes with Allan Madahbee

February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Allan Madahbee playing a traditional flute

Sunday, February 12, 1:00 PM

The hauntingly beautiful voice of these mystical instruments has intrigued music lovers and musicians for centuries; but why does the flute hold such importance in certain Native American cultures? Join Allan Madahbee (Ojibwe), artist and musician, for an interactive presentation. Allan will discuss the significance of the instrument, explain the legend of the courting flute, and will demonstrate the personal touch he provides for his handmade flutes. Participants will encounter a variety of flutes, examine their construction, and listen to the soothing sounds of these beautiful instruments. A limited selection of Allan’s flutes will be available for purchase. Already have a flute? Feel free to bring it along!
