English Walnut trees along San Marcos Creek, in southern California,
where the branch for this flute was gathered.
The bark has been left on this unsplit English Walnut (Juglans regia) branch flute, bark fissures inlaid with crushed turquoise, giving the impression of blue lichen growing on the branch. Touches of real lichen have been preserved on the branch as well. Measuring 15 1/4" in length, it is Verdi tuned (A=432) to a high D minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4 with a bright and sweet voice, playing three upper octave notes as well as the gypsy scale. Elk lacing with turquoise and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood shoe to aid against wetout. The branch for this flute was sustainably gathered, with love, respect and gratitude, along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, CA amongst a wild grove of English Walnut trees.
