LOPING WOLF Retreat with Mary Youngblood

L O P I N G W O L F presents the Last Planned Musical Retreat for 2008 with Two-time Grammy Winner: Mary Youngblood - First Lady of the Flute

WHEN: September 6, 2008
COST: Each workshop is $45. We are asking for a $5 donation from attendees not taking a workshop to help defray expenses.

DETAILS: Please come and share NAF techniques, attend Mary’s workshops, jam with Mary and attend the closing open mic session to practice what you've learned with the "First Lady of the Flute". Non-workshop attendees will be able to cavort, try out other flutes ‘n’ drums and practice jamming.

We know there are some who were not able to make the previous four retreats held this past summer (“Tempest Fugit!”), so we hope this will give you a chance to attend. Space is limited, so we encourage you to sign up now!

Call to reserve a spot and obtain directions.

Bring ALL your flutes (“A” minor for the workshop), drums and percussion instruments.

Mary Youngblood books, CDs and other merchandise will be available for purchase.
