Dobbs, flutist and professor of music at Marshall University,
will serve as musical director and one of the instructors at the
4th annual Timber Flute Festival this year. The festival will
take place at the Randolph County Community Arts Center in
Elkins, W.Va., from June 20 to 25.
“It’s a weeklong series of workshops, concerts and social events, all associated with the traditions surrounding the wooden flute,” Dobbs said.
Dobbs will teach fife and keyed flutes. Other instructors at the festival will include Grey Larsen, who will teach Irish traditional flute; Ron Warren, teaching Native-American flute; and Colin St. Martin, teaching 18th century flute. Flutemaker John Gallagher also will be on hand to demonstrate the craft of wooden flutemaking.
