We heard haunting music coming from the back of Libb’s Trail one day and were deeply moved, so went to investigate. It turns out members Elizabeth Beckham and John Clevenger were enjoying the spaciousness of the trail in which to play their flutes and let the music expand and float away. It was MAGICAL. So we asked them to come and talk about their passion, and play for us.
