The Native American Flute is a fascinating instrument that creates exquisite music. It is used and has been used by Native American people in different ways, such as in their prayers, festivities, weaved with their beautiful stories, or for boys to woo girls.
The Knoxville/Townsend area is very lucky to be home of the Smoky Mountains Flute Circle. The SMFC has hosted two back to back National level events, the 2013 and 2014 Renaissance of the North American Flute Foundation annual gatherings. It all started with Knoxville Area Cherokee Flute Player Randy McGinnis who founded the SMFC.
