Bozho Jayek!  (Hello All)  Welcome to my website!

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.

CD Cover

What's the CD cover look like?

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!
