Full of melodious surprises, Wind Weaver's blending of Native American Flute with acoustic guitar offers an emotionally evocative experience . The haunting sound of the flutes mixed with the sensuality of guitar explores a world of sounds from folk, medieval, celtic, bluegrass, and other genres.

Biography

A serendipitous opportunity to jam together resulted in an incredible synergy unfolding between the two unique writing and playing styles of both artists. Terry also sells Native American Flutes and met Paul in a local mall while displaying and playing the flutes. Their sound hooked him and that is how it all began.

This recent collaboration and musical experimentation between Terry and Paul has blossomed into the newly established duo "Wind Weaver". Audiences are surprised, delighted and captivated by the mesmerizing sounds and rhythms that intertwine in their playing.

Terry's music honors the traditional style of the Native American Flute beautifully, however her music also pushes beyond, delving into a wide range of genres including folk, celtic, medieval and Jazz. Terry has been inspired by Mary Youngblood, Mark Holland and Autumn's Child, Scott August and R. Carlos Nakai. Terry travels to Native American Flute Festivals throughout North America and has performed at the Zion Canyon Art and Flute Festival, in Springdale, Utah and Flute Quest in the Seattle area.

Paul is a seasoned songwriter who throughout his career has written for television and other audio visual productions. He has released two solo CD's. Paul's guitar style and lyrics are heavily influenced by Joni Mitchell and Bruce Cockburn. With these and other talented artists as inspiration Paul has crafted a very personal style of his own.

Wind Weaver has most recently performed at the 2008 Maple Sugar Festival ( they liked us so much they asked us back for the 2009 festival) in Nanaimo, BC, Canada and are regular performers at Pioneer Square Farmer's Market in Nanaimo. Other Nanaimo performances include fund raisers for Aids programs in Africa and for the 2008 Chinese earthquake relief fund.

Wind Weaver are frequent performers at open mic stages around Vancouver Island, and were the feature act for the July open mic held monthly at the wonderfully, quirky venue, Mermaid's Mug in Nanaimo. Wind Weaver are regular peformers at the Island Hue and friends music night at Serious Coffee in downtown Nanaimo.

Wind Weaver's song Summer Clouds has been selected by Road Trip Nation for an episode in the 2009 season.
