Hi Helen! Welcome to BigDawg Music Mafia. Thanks so much, for sharing your information on the flute, with us. Years ago, 2 girlfriends and I performed bluegrass music and my friend Mae, played the flute.... we incorporated it into a few of the numbers, we performed. Flute is certainly, NOT a traditional bluegrass instrument, but it worked very well on the right songs and our audiances seemed to enjoy it. If you have any recordings of your flute, I hope you will share them with us. Welcome to the family!
