Native American flute concert Monday


The evocative and rich tones of Native American flutes will be combined with the kind of poetry “that people who don’t typically like poetry are able to enjoy,” as musician, author, yoga teacher, and former English teacher Jerry Lagadec performs his second concert at Holmes Public Library Monday at 6:30 p.m. “He really blew people away with the sound and expressiveness of the different flutes,” said Laurie Cavanaugh, library director, of Lagadec’s first performance there. “The performance has a very meditative quality to it.” Cavanaugh said in an interview that Lagadec’s self-published book, “Walking with Basho: Poems, Rambles, and Rants” is available at the library. Lagadec, who has lived in town for more than 35 years, said in an interview that his performances are both “artsy-fartsy” and “down-to-earth.” He said his wife, Diane, gave him his first flute about 15 years ago and he now has about 35 of them. “The thing that’s exciting about the instrument is that anyone can learn it,” Lagadec said. Lagadec taught English at Bridgewater State University for a decade and taught guitar at a Navajo reservation. He and his wife teach at Maha Yoga Center in Bridgewater.
