My name is Woody Carter. I am Potawatomi and Creek, and I play the native flute. I have just released my first CD. The title is NMeshomes and it means My Grandfather in the Bode'wadmi (Potawatomi) language. I chose to name it that to honor my Grandfather, Woody Crumbo who was an amazingly talented artist, dancer, and flute player/maker besides being a great grandpa! He inspired me to learn this instrument and I play one of the flutes he made on the CD. On some tunes, I also play some other flutes, Celtic Whistles, guitar and mandolin.
The CD has eleven tunes on it. There are some old favorites like El Condor Pasa, and Amazing Grace, as well as some relaxing and meditative original tunes that I've even succeeded in putting myself to sleep with!
The CD is now available for download at CD baby.com! Click on the link to the left to go directly to the download page. There you can listen to a sample of each track.
Ahhh!! So glad you asked! Here it is:
The flute player you see in the background is from a work of my Grandpa's, and the flute you see on the blanket is one he made.
That's the one I play on
Amazing Grace. I love the sound of it!

Well, That's all for now. I'll be updating the website bit by bit. Thanks for Stopping by!
