Quiet Fire
Stroutsos, Eaton, Clipman Concert & CD Launch
 

A short time ago, three accomplished musicians came together to make a recording that would break new ground.  The result was QUIET FIRE (www.whiteswanrecords.com ): a blending of the world flutes of Gary Stroutsos, William Eaton's unique multi-stringed instruments, and pan-global percussion by Will Clipman.  Together, their music reflects a deep respect for the earth and its many cultures.  It is music that can, at once, ignite one's passion and, at the same time, soothe one's soul.  Sunday, February 20, 2005, 7 to 9 pm in the Great Room. Tickets $10/Advance at Crystal Magic, Golden Word & Sedona Creative Life Center or $15/at the Door.  February 2005 marks the first time that this group will be on tour.  Join us and experience the Quiet Fire!
 

Gary Stroutsos

Gary Stroutsos initially studied jazz and afro-Cuban music, but soon became interested in Native American, and far Eastern flute traditions. He first gained international attention when he was featured in the Ken Burns PBS documentary, Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery. Soon after, Stroutsos received an invitation to play at the White House. Stroutsos's playing reflects his experience in world traditions while often adding new dimensions to the sources of his inspirations. He has recorded 13 CD's and is included in the soon to be released Makoche Masters' CD.  For more information about Gary Stroutsos, visit www.garystroutsos.com
 

William Eaton

William Eaton's strings bring to mind a masterful blend of soft classical guitar and evocations of place. A number of years ago, he began a collaboration with R. Carlos Nakai which has resulted in six recordings and two Grammy nominations. Clipman and Eaton also recently collaborated on "Sparks and Embers" which received a Billboard Critic's Choice award. Eaton is well known for his custom stringed instruments. His latest creation, the koto-harp guitar makes a great partner for Stroutsos's Xiao, and Clipman's tinsha, gong, and chimes.  For more information about William Eaton, visit www.william-eaton.com  
 

Will Clipman

Will Clipman has played an eclectic range of musical styles, including jazz, rock, blues, and fusion. He has performed on over 50 recordings, including Grammy®-nominated work with R. Carlos Nakai and William Eaton, which has created a new genre of music in the Southwest. Clipman brings a deeply spiritual feeling to the Quiet Fire Trio. His sensitive musicianship is expressed through a wide array of percussion instruments from many cultures, including the West African udu and djembe, Native American Taos Pueblo drums, Sonoran gourd water drums conceived and created by himself and William Eaton, and Asian cymbals, gongs, and chimes from Tibet to Bali and back.  For more information about Will Clipman, visit www.willclipman.com
