Native American Flute meets Acoustic Guitar in the duo Wind Weaver. These musical artists, weave the organic sounds of these instrument together while maintaining the elegant simplicity of each, creating music that the listener can feel.
A serendipitous opportunity to jam together resulted in an incredible synergy unfolding between the two unique writing and playing styles of both artists. Terry also sells Native American Flutes and met Paul in a local mall while displaying and playing the flutes. Their sound hooked him and that is how it all began.
Audiences are surprised, delighted and captivated by the mesmerizing sounds and rhythms that intertwine in their playing. Both Terry and Paul 'feel' the music when they are playing and performing and this establishes a connection with listeners.
Terry's music honors the traditional style of the Native American Flute beautifully, however her music also pushes beyond, delving into a wide range of genres including folk, celtic, medieval and Jazz. Terry has been inspired by Mary Youngblood, Mark Holland and Autumn's Child,Jeff Ball, Scott August and R. Carlos Nakai. Terry travels to Native American Flute Festivals throughout North America and has performed at the Zion Canyon Art and Flute Festival, in Springdale, Utah and Flute Quest in the Seattle area.
Paul is a seasoned songwriter who throughout his career has written for television and other audio visual productions. He has released two solo CD's. Paul's guitar style and lyrics are heavily influenced by Joni Mitchell and Bruce Cockburn. With these and other talented artists as inspiration Paul has crafted a very personal style of his own.
Both of these talented performers have developed their musical abilities and talents naturally without any formal instruction. In fact, Terry, player of the flutes never played any instrument until she received her first flute for Christmas in 2005.
Wind Weaver has most recently performed at the Nanaimo Maple Sugar Festival in 2008 and 2009 and the 2009 Vancouver Island Exhbition. Other Nanaimo performances include fund raisers for Aids programs in Africa,

The acoustic duo, Wind Weaver, and their album "Wild Threads" is an album that uses the musical talents of the Native American flute, acoustic guitar, and percussion to paint serene pictures in the mind with relaxing and contemplative sounds. In "Fluid Ooze" the melodic flute gently frolics around the steady, yet subdued sounds of a drum creating an atmosphere of serene tranquility. In "Aerial Wandering" a rhythmic and catchy acoustic guitar riff starts the song before an emotive flute comes in to tell a story that will enlighten your senses. "Summer Clouds" is a song in which a sympathetic flute and guitar combine to produce a well balanced song that will take you away to a warm summer day. The music within this album is sweet and tranquil as the Native American flute and acoustic guitar merge to create a feeling of placid relaxation. Whether you appreciate the sounds of these instruments or enjoy calming background music, "Wild Threads" is an album you will thoroughly enjoy.
