About the Artists
R. Carlos Nakai is the world’s premier performer and composer of the Native American flute. He has released thirty-six albums on Canyon Records, including RIAA Certified Gold and Platinum Records, and has sold over four million albums worldwide. William Eaton is a musician, composer, Canyon Records recording artist, and co-founding Director of the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery. His multi-stringed instrumental inventions are world-renowned. Will Clipman plays a pan-global palette of ethnic percussion in addition to the traditional drumkit. He has recorded over seventy albums, over half of those for Canyon Records. Among the three of them, Nakai, Eaton and Clipman have collectively received twenty GRAMMY® nominations.
About the Music
Over the course of their thirty-year collaboration as performing and recording artists, R. Carlos Nakai, William Eaton & Will Clipman have engaged in an ever-evolving improvisational trialogue to generate their collective sound. That creative process is documented on four previous studio recordings for Canyon Records: Feather, Stone & Light, Red Wind, the GRAMMY® nominated In a Distant Place (with Tibetan flutist Nawang Khechog) and the GRAMMY® nominated Dancing into Silence; the trialogue continues to evolve on their new Canyon Records album Spiral Rendezvous, which will be released on August 19th. The trio will play themes and variations from this music in their trademark one-of-kind, in-the-moment performance in Montrose on August 7th.
