Another Kansas Character You Should Meet

All things Kansas!

Though my good friend Ken is a world traveler, he has adopted Kansas as his home for the last twenty-five years. He is an excellent artist, making Native American flutes and drums, and has published a CD of his own flute music. Follow this link to hear "Coyotes in the Orchard"

(This is information taken directly from the CDBABY web site about "Coyotes in the Orchard"):

Native American Ken Lopez crafts the traditional flutes he plays. An artist and musician, Ken is a world traveler and Vietnam Veteran. He has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC, and at the University of Hawaii in a cultural exchange with Hawaiians and Maori, among others. He performs across the country and in Central and South America helping to promote cultural exchange between other tribal peoples.

Ruston Slager is an extraordinary improvisational musician, a surfer and an artist. He has the rare gift of creating spontaneous music. Already a stand alone artist making his own music when Ken and Ruston met, it was clear that creating music was something they were going to do together, and it turned into a great first CD.
