I kind of overdosed on Native American flute music back in my new age days in the late 80s and 90s. So I don't listen to this style very often. But Paul has pulled me back in with his excellent collection of tracks.
It starts off with new music from Sherry Finzer so I'm in automatically. From there Paul uses a variety of artists and styles to carry us through the hour-long mix.
Here's what Paul says about this mix:
“The Native American flute is one of those instruments that instantly has cultural associations. Intertwined with and beyond that, its wistful, haunting tone is a sound that evokes gratitude and reverence. It is with those qualities in mind that I selected tracks for this mix.”
Thanks again Paul for another beautifully curated set.
The tracklist and links to all music in this mix are in the comments.
Thank you for a great mix of Native America-style flute music...it would have been even better if there were more indigenous musicians in the mix tho, as there are many fine examples out there like Daid Maracle for example. He's the real deal. But thanks anyway, i enjoyed the mix and discovered some lovely new musicians to follow. Here's a link to one of Maracle's cuts I'm sure you'll e joy. https://open.spotify.com/track/4Fch4FMUCGARzI0QHJ3ngU?si=oys0J89FRGyOUTw01RrpIg&utm_source=copy-link
Thanks so much for giving it a listen--and taking a moment to leave a (nice) comment. Happy Thanksgiving, wherever you are...
I am so happy that you are still doing this work. I have been listening to you for over ten years!
I'll let Dave accept your thanks for this nice comment. I'm just a musical hobo catchin' a ride on the Low Light Express these past four years... ;-)

A quick correction: The track by Tony Gerber and Phil Keaggy is not "Lacus Spei (Lake of Hope)," but "Mare Nectaris (Sea of Nectar)," another track from the same album. This track also features some nice guitar work by Phil Keaggy, but not as much flute music from Tony. Sorry for the mix up. Either way, Red Lunar is a great album! ;-)
"It's knowin' that my door is always open and my paths are free to walk..." Memories of Glen Campbell on the radio circa 1973-74 (without looking it up). Just so you know I got the reference. :-)
