BAGADUCE MUSIC HOSTS FLUTE-MAKER HAWK HENRIES & NEW ART EXHIBIT DURING OPEN HOUSE
Bagaduce Music presents Indigenous flute-maker and performer, Hawk Henries, on Sunday, June 19th as part of its Open House weekend on their campus in Blue Hill.
Providing an opportunity to learn more about wooden flutes and Indigenous music, Hawk Henries will play a variety of different wooden flutes and selections of music during a 2pm workshop. A member of the Chaubunagungamaug band of Nipmuck, a people indigenous to what is now southern New England, he has composed original music and made Eastern Woodlands flutes using only hand tools for over 30 years.
Hawk enjoys educational settings where he can engage the audience in dialogue. During this workshop, he will offer a demonstration of the process, technique, and tools used, “I use music to explore how we can build healthy relationships with each other. Sharing music, stories, and humor remind us of the gifts Life has to offer.”
On display this weekend will be a new exhibit, Beckoning The Elements/The Calling. The exhibit features a selection of work by Castine-based artist Lisa Tyson Ennis and Blue Hill-based artist Heidi Daub who both take inspiration from the quiet stillness of their natural surroundings. Ennis’ work explores various stories around the elusive passage of time and change and will feature her works in the 19th-century historical photographic processes of cyanotype. Daub describes her works as “evolving from an introspection” and “an attempt to find color, form, and movement to express what we cannot describe, but what we feel”. Beckoning The Elements/The Calling is on display in the Performance Hall through September 30th with a reception being scheduled in the near future.
This free event is sponsored and presented by Bagaduce Music. More information about the event can be found at bagaducemusic.org. Bagaduce Music’s mission is to collect, preserve and lend printed music and to promote the appreciation, knowledge, and performance of music.
Hawk Henries will lead a workshop and performance of wooden flutes and Indigenous music on Sunday, June 19 as part of Bagaduce Music’s weekend-long Open House.
