SAGUACHE ó For one night only at The Historic Ute Theatre, 410 Fourth Street, downtown Saguache, will be Leon Joseph Littlebird featuring Native Colorado music at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 5.

Join the Ute for the sweet sounds of flute and guitar accompanied by storytelling with Coloradoís own native son. This performance will be enhanced by multimedia slide projections created by Jeff Shook.

Join Leon Joseph on a musical journey through the Native history of the nation. Become mesmerized by his velvet voice on stories of his past. Native American Flutes, acoustic guitars and keyboards blended with loop stations to form a mezmerizing one-man show.

With roots in both pioneer and native cultures Leon embodies the spirit of the mountains. Leonís great grandfather was one of the original settlers in Blackhawk and his great-uncle was a classical composer and performer in Silver Plume and Georgetown.

This connection to the rich history of Colorado comes through in Leonís music. A prolific songwriter and performer, his unique style tells tales of Colorado and the people of the west. His performances shape compelling stories into a musical show that leaves audiences asking for more.

Leonís ancestors also include the indigenous Navajo people of northern New Mexico. Leon understands and respects the ancient tradition of Native American Flute music. Often the Native American Flute was used as a right of passage, for ceremony and for healing.

Leonís flute style combines ancient flute music with captivating rhythms that weave a tapestry of unforgettable sound. His flute music has vast popularity in clubs, concerts, weddings and special events. He regularly performs with numerous world-class musicians and has recorded with internationally renowned flute player Travis Terry.

Tickets are $10 adults; under 10 FREE.
