House Concert

R. Carlos Nakai

Of Navajo-Ute heritage, R. Carlos Nakai is the world’s premier performer of
the Native American flute. Nakai began his musical studies on the trumpet but his musical
interests took a turn when he was given a traditional cedar wood flute as a gift and challenged to see what he could do with it. His first album, Changes, was released by Canyon Records in 1983 and since then he has released over thirty-five recordings with Canyon plus additional albums and guest appearances on other labels.

In addition to his educational workshops and residencies, Nakai has appeared as a soloist throughout the United States, Europe and Japan and has collaborated with such artists as guitarist/luthier William Eaton and composers James DeMars and Phillip Glass among many others.  Read his complete bio here and visit his website here.

Will Clipman

percussionist * poet * performing & recording artist * maskmaker * storyteller * educator

Will Clipman began playing his father’s drums and his mother’s piano at the age of three.  He played his first professional gig at fourteen, and has since then mastered a pan-global palette of over one hundred percussion instruments in addition to the traditional drumset. Will is a six-time GRAMMY® Nominee, a three-time Native American Music Award Winner, a Canadian Aboriginal Music Award Winner, a New Age Reporter Music Award Winner, and a two-time TAMMIE Award Winner; and has been inducted into the Tucson Musicians Museum for his contributions to the musical community in his hometown.

Will has recorded over sixty albums, including over thirty for Canyon Records, where he is regarded as the house percussionist. In addition to his solo work, Will performs with R. Carlos Nakai, William Eaton, Solvei & ZumaSOL, Amber Norgaard, Gabriel Ayala, and Coyote Jump, among many other internationally-acclaimed artists and ensembles.
