Lyon College will present Grammy- and Emmy-nominated Native American flute artist John Two-Hawks on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6 p.m. in the Bevens Music Room of the Brown Chapel on the Lyon College campus, 2300 Highland Rd., Batesville.
The performance, “Of Mist and Stone: Sacred Music and Ancient Mysteries,” is sponsored by the Lyon College Music department and Convocation Committee and is free and open to the public.
In the presentation, Two-Hawks, a Native-American flautist, dancer, storyteller, author and composer who descends from both Celtic and Indigenous people, will share the wisdom and knowledge of two highly advanced, predawn civilizations and cultures through sacred music and stories.
Two-Hawks is a Platinum Award winning recording artist whose music has been featured in movies by Fox Searchlight, films by HBO and programs by The History Channel. He has been performing professionally since the 1990s and is credited with helping to introduce the Native American flute to a worldwide audience.
In addition to the Native American flute, Two-Hawks sings and plays many other instruments. He has produced nearly 20 CDs and shares his Lakota heritage in numerous books he has written and through guest lectures at schools and on college campuses across the U.S.
