Grammy Award-Winning Native American Flutist, Mary Youngblood, to Perform FREE Admission Event at Sac State

Mary Youngblood will perform at Sacramento State’s University Union Ballroom on Tuesday, April 24. Admission is FREE.

Sacramento State’s University Union UNIQUE Programs is pleased to announce a live performance featuring Mary Youngblood at the University Union Ballroom on Tuesday, April 24, 2012.

Native American Mary Youngblood, half Seminole and half Aleut, is the first woman to professionally record the Native American Flute, and the first woman to win not just one, but two Grammy Awards for "Best Native American Music Album". In addition to Mary’s two Grammy Awards and three nominations, she was the first woman to win ‘Flutist of the Year’ in both 1999 and 2000. She also won ‘Best Female Artist’ in 2000 at the Native American Music Awards (NAMMYS). With five unique and accomplished albums under her belt, Mary owns over 250 hand carved Native American Style flutes in her collection and uses a wide variety of them throughout every one of her albums. Each of her flutes is masterfully crafted from different types of wood, bringing a unique sound and texture to each song. When Mary performs live, it takes only a moment to acknowledge the profound spirituality of the sacred Native American flute and its historical courtship and wooing attributes. Her haunting music is much more than a song … it’s liquid poetry, a prayer.

Mary Youngblood will perform at Sacramento State’s University Union Ballroom on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 7:30 pm. Admission is free for students and the general public.
