At 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2016 the Jefferson Community College Fall Cultural Arts Series will present special music by Native American flutist Joseph FireCrow in Sturtz Theater. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

FireCrow is a member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe of the Indian reservation located in Lame Deer, Montana. Drawing from his Native American culture along with natural elements wind, water, earth and sky, FireCrow’s performance on the flute is described as hypnotic and captivating. Since recording his first album in 1992 intended for concert sales only, FireCrow has released eight solo albums for public purchase of which 6 are available internationally. In 1996, he debuted his first, self-titled album.

This year, FireCrow received the Native American Music Award (NAMA) for Lifetime Achievement at the 2016 NAMMY awards (fashioned after the Grammy awards ceremony). Adding to his list of accolades FireCrow’s CD titled Night Walk, released in 2012, earned NAMA Best Flute Recording at the 2013 NAMMY awards ceremony, NAMA Artist of the Year in 2010, a third time recipient of Flutist of the Year award in 2010, and best new age album at the 52nd Annual Grammy awards and the list goes on. According to his website, reviewers describe FireCrow as most gifted and a national treasure. Samples of his music are available online at www.josephfirecrow.com. He currently resides in Connecticut.
