Icicle Creek Center for the Arts - 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth, WA, 98826
Gary Stroutsos performs world flute music drawn from many traditional cultures. With backgrounds in American jazz, Afro-Cuban and American Indian music, Gary Stroutsos pushes the boundaries of original flute music being composed and recorded today. Evoking a spirit of place and the voices of the land, his work includes internationally-acclaimed recordings at sacred sites, using the unique acoustics and history of each great space as the starting point for musical exploration: A shared moment in a timeless place, where flute melodies, ancestral and modern, play off one another and songs come alive, buoying and breathing through the generations. A self-taught ethnomusicologist, Stroutsos is strongly respectful of ethnic cultures and musical traditions. Since 1994 he has produced and recorded over ten albums and has been featured throughout the world on the NPR syndicated programs Echoes with John Diliberto and Skitch Hendersons New York Evening at the Pops.
