Sunday afternoon we drove up to Asheville for a visit to two extraordinary people, flutist Kate Steinbeck, music director of Pan Harmonia, and her husband Chris Abell, maker of wooden flutes and owner of the Abell Flute Company.
We've been enjoying Kate's music for years, with her group Keowee Chamber Players (recently renamed Pan Harmonia). It was fun to see her and Chris in their home environment. Here's Kate showing us her new studio space:
…and Chris chatting on the front porch (he doesn't really have a tree growing out of his head— sorrry, Chris).
And here's Tinker.
If you're ever within striking distance of Asheville, NC, you must catch a performance of Pan Harmonia. It's music of the most wonderful sort.
