What to Expect
Werner John blends beautiful music with his love of nature and the human spirit. A professional flutist in several genres and a meditation teacher, Werner's music always relaxes and uplifts.
For weddings, his baroque ensemble can play before and afterward while Werner adds a soulful Native American flute to the ceremony. The Living Woods Ensemble is also perfect for an intimate concert or dinner party.
Churches enjoy hearing Werner's Native flutes as well as baroque flute and recorders. Werner's spoken presentations, for the Sunday message or a full 90-minute presentation, focus on the evolution of society including the topics "Earth in Concert"; "Francis, a Saint for Our Time"; and "The Promise of Thanksgiving" (learn more at (link hidden)).
"Werner John's presentation as a guest in our pulpit at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany (NY) captivated the congregation. He wove commentary on the fragility of our planet with beautiful soaring, sometimes haunting, sometimes playful original melodies performed on flutes made from his own hand." -Al De Salvo, Albany, NY
Werner John (Flutewalker) is a multitalented musical artist. Since 1987 he's been creating performances, recordings and instruments which help people relax and reconnect with their roots.
Werner's classical training, affinity for the simple joys of wood flutes, and love for the land have found their way into unique musical offerings. Over 1,500 North American Indian style flutes, designed and handcarved by the artist, have found their places in the lives of often first-time flute players. Werner's recordings, popular among those seeking relief from the stresses of life, are offered at his shows and nationwide in Native stores to the tune of a quarter million sold. And Werner's unique World Flute Story Concerts address cultural and environmental issues through the medium of ancient flutes, whose voices have accompanied humanity's journey for 40,000 years.
Werner's mission is to continue exploring connections between music, the human spirit and the natural world and bring voices of ancient resonance to life.
Werner John Flutewalker is available for your special event in the Northeast US.
