Harbor History Museum is excited to welcome back Gary Stroutsos, international flute recording artist, composer, and cultural storyteller, to the Museum for an encore performance on February 19th from 7:00-8:30pm.
Gary Stroutsos performs world flute music drawn from many cultures, evoking a spirit of place and the voice of the land. His work encompasses over twenty recordings. Stroutsos was drawn to the plains of the Dakotas, canyonlands of Arizona, and mountains of Montana, where Lakota, Mandan-Hidatsa and Salish Kootenai elders asked him to set their songs to flute.
Gary's music was also showcased in the Ken Burns PBS documentary Lewis and Clark, which led to a command performance at the White House. Songs and stories from this experience will be part of his show.
