Cleveland State Community College is hosting Grammy award-winning Native American flutist Joseph Fire Crow to campus on Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m. in the George R. Johnson Cultural Heritage Center.

His accomplishments include: a Grammy in the New Age category, a Grammy nomination in the Best Native American Music Album category, six Native American Music Awards including Songwriter of the Year and Artist of the Year and a Telly award.

His powerful performance weaves transcendent flute with Native American storytelling and traditional drumming, taking you on a journey into true American history.

“Cleveland State is excited to have the winner of the 2010 winner of the Grammy Award for the Best New Age Album, Mr. Joseph Fire Crow, on our campus,” stated Tracey Wright, director of Special Programs and Community Relations.

“His musical talents are astounding. His music is said to have a transforming power. This is a cultural experience that you don’t want to miss.”

Fire Crow stated, “The natural beauty of the flute evokes very powerful emotions. The traditional flute is social, not ceremonial, in nature and should always be treated with that in mind and spirit.”

The Joseph Fire Crow performance is part of the 2013-14 Program Series sponsored by the Office of Special Programs and Community Relations.

All events are free to the public. Registration is recommended.
