Contemporary Native-American flute music
What does it mean to think “flute outside the box?” Jonny Lipford, enrolled Perdido Bay Tribe member, takes an age old instrument and uses it to create not only the traditional sounds, but also sounds that are new and not commonly linked to the Native American style flute- a voice all his own. The historic Clifton Opera House will host Jonny Lipford on Saturday, March 10th at 7:30pm. Johnny has once again included the opera house on his upcoming Midwest tour. He will be featuring cuts from his newest CD.
Lipford has been featured on NativeRadio.com, the world’s largest collection of broadcasted Native music, as Spotlight Artist with the debut of his first release. As a composer of his own original music, Jonny has been recognized as a two time NAMA nominee, ISMA and JPF Nominee and NEMA winner. Along his journey he has shared the stage with many notable musicians including Mary Youngblood, Mark Holland, Jeff Ball, Arvel Bird and Michael DeMaria. With a love and respect for all types of music, Jonny awakens these genres, making him a true virtuoso in this industry.
