Native American flautist + New Age pianist = a night of Asheville entertainment. Don’t laugh, I’m a big fan. Tickets are $25 for a show on Friday, July 13.
The show is one of only two scheduled U.S. performances this year from the Grammy-nominated pair, who mix solo piano with the sounds of the Native American flute. According to promoter Mark Fields, Nakai and Kater have not performed together since their last sold out concert in Asheville in 2001.
From a promotional email from Fields:
Join us this summer for what promises to be one of the most extraordinary evenings of music of 2012 as legendary Native American Flutist R. Carlos Nakai and the acclaimed American Pianist Peter Kater join together to perform at the new Kimmel Arena in Asheville
What might at first be considered an awkward pairing, the union of the most ancient instrument in North America (the Native American Flute) and a Steinway Concert Piano, has now become known to many as the most powerful and profound unions of musical instruments ever to perform together. A union that has achieved Nakai & Kater over a dozen Grammy nominations and millions of record sales for their collaborations.
This will be one of only two scheduled performances in the United States for 2012. For samples of their music and for more information on the artists visit:www.markfieldsevents.com
