is more in the Native Heart genre. Ghosts of the Gallery is a balance of a variety of flutes, rhythms and styles. His CD, a courtship of flutes
, is a romantic story with a happy ending. Continuing with the courtship tradition,
Moonlight (Midnight) Suitors is like a trip back in time through Stephen's imagination and is Stephen's newest creative effort. Visit his photo album to experience his
Stephen's poetry is also from the heart and is improvisational in that he intentionally
takes a spontaneous idea and does not overly rework it. His poetry remains spontaneous
and improvisational in nature. Read his Introduction in his Excerpts from "A Canticle
