Measuring 16 1/8" in length, the bark has been left on this unsplit Fremont Cottonwood (Populus fremontii) branch flute.
Concert tuned to Bb, it plays the minor pentatonic modes 1 & 4 as well as the Gypsy scale, with three, in tune,
upper octave notes. American bison lacing holds the bird to the nest.
* The branch used to make this flute was gathered during the 2008 Zion Canyon Art and Flute Festival,
from a fallen Cottonwood tree that grew near the festival grounds in Zion Canyon, Utah.
