Join us for a unique opportunity to meet Nipmuck flute maker and musician, Hawk Henries. Hawk has been creating flutes using only hand tools and fire for over 25 years! Are you curious about how they are made? Hawk will offer a demonstration of the process, technique, and tools used. You’re even welcome you to try your hand at various steps!

Come ask questions, get to know his perspectives, stories, and philosophy regarding flute making and life. Hawk will also be hosting a performance later in the day and it’s a can’t miss event! 

Hawk’s demonstration will be from 11 am-12 pm and his performance will be at 1-2 pm. All are welcome and the price is included with admission.
