Native American Flute
Dave Merrick & Clive Mills
Mon 20 November 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
Dave Merrick joins BRLSI to speak about the history and origins of the Native American flute and his journey of discovery with it. Dave received awards from the Native American Flute Awards Organization (NASFA), USA, in 2020 and 2021 for his playing and compositions on an instrument he discovered ten years ago whilst traveling in New Mexico, USA.
Clive Mills will join Dave on guitar and is a long-standing professional classical, folk and blues guitar performer and teacher. Both have performed together for many years, and in 2021, they developed the Native American flute and guitar duo: Inner Voice.
The talk will include an offering of thanks to the particular Native American people who have helped and encouraged Dave on his journey, aligning Inner Voice with the Native American struggle for social justice, and will be illustrated with videos of some of the music that attracted the attention of NASFA. Don’t miss!
