Kevin Locke Interview to Download

I downloaded and listened to a interesting interview with Kevin Locke on my MP3 player during my flight back from the east coast yesterday. Kevin was interviewed for a program called the Jefferson Hour on public radio in which an actor plays the role of Thomas Jefferson. There is no flute content on this interview, but Kevin tells many interesting stories about the Lakota tradition and the interaction of Lewis and Clark Expedition (this was the historical aspect of the program as it involved the personality of Thomas Jefferson).

Kevin tells the story of the White Buffalo Calf Woman, and shares many wonderful explanations of the Lakota language and explanation of Lakota words. In the banter with 'Thomas Jefferson', Kevin discusses religion, the existence of God/Great Spirit and the Lakota culture at the beginning of the 1800's.

This show is produced by Makoche Recording Company which produces records for artists such as Bryan Akipa, Keith Bear, Joseph Fire Crow, Sissy Goodhouse, Annie Humphrey, Kevin Locke, Gary Stroutsos, Lakota Thunder and Andrew Vasquez.

Here's a link to the website and MP3 download:
