Mark Holland is considered by many to be one of the leading authorities on the Native American and world flutes performing and recording today. Leader and founder of the ensemble Autumn’s Child, Mark Holland has been called, “the Jimi Hendrix of the Native American Flute.” His unique approach and usage of the flute along with his technical skills brings about such comparisons. Through his various ensembles such as Autumn’s Child, Wind & Fire, and Reflections, Holland showcases the versatility of the Native American & world flutes, creating a new acoustic instrumental fusion; an eclectic sound that is truly one of a kind. Mark Holland started Autumn’s Child in 1995 and began his publishing and record label, Cedar ‘n’ Sage Music in 1997. He has recorded 24 CDs of his own music to date. Holland has a B.A. in Music from the University of Missouri. World percussionist extraordinaire

N. Scott Robinson, Ph.D., brings an enormous breadth of diverse experience in ethnic percussion traditions to the stage and the classroom. Currently teaching world musics and popular music at San Diego Mesa College in CA, he has performed with a long list of instrumentalists, composers, vocal artists and ensembles, including Benny Carter Big Band, The Cleveland Orchestra, Glen Velez, Marilyn Horne, Paul Winter Consort, John Cage, George Crumb, Annea Lockwood, Howard Levy, Malcolm Dalglish, Autumn's Child, Gerald Alston, and Jeanie Bryson, among others.

Media:  Selected Youtube  If you are impatient, skip ahead to about 2 minutes when Mark starts playing the flute, but you will miss Scott's absolute virtuoso percussion work.  Then just let the next one in the playlist run!
