Native American Flute
I'm a Denver native. I have lived along the front range all my life, (Denver, Boulder, Golden, Arvada, and Fort Collins).
My interest in the Native American flute has always been with me, but in 2006, my wife and I paid a visit to Mesa Verde National Park. I was saturated with flute music. My wife said I became "possessed". I made up my mind, I have to play the flute.
I bought a flute and a friend of mine who played flute was willing to get me started. While I was at his house, I noticed he had a didgeridoo. I expressed my interest in it and told me to check out a didge player from Australia who was playing in the area. His name was Ash Dargan. It turns out Ash is a Native American flute player also. So my didge/flute lessons were long and enjoyable. A couple of years ago, my wife had me take a DNA test. It turns out that I am 49% Native American. That was a surprise.
I enjoy playing the flute. I lift my fingers and let go of the rest of the world. It brings an inner peace to me, that I love to share with all.
