 Dr. Sabine Kurz-Sherman
  Sabine has had a love for music and nature since studying classical piano as a young girl growing up under the green forests of Germany.  After earning her PhD in biology, her career as a scientist brought Dr. Kurz to the United States, where her heart opened to the beautiful yet increasingly endangered ecoregions of North America.  She now teaches college level biology in the San Diego area and is a certified yoga instructor, helping to open the minds and hearts of her students to environmental awareness.  Expressing herself musically, Sabine performed with the Latin Jazz band Cadencia on keyboards, percussion and lead vocals, recording three CDs with that group.  A deeply spiritual experience in an old growth forest inspired a quest to find a flute that could better express the deeper realization of Life that had opened up to her.  Having learned about the branch flutes Jon Sherman was making, a very special partnership was born.


Jon Sherman
Jon's love for music and nature was nurtured from an early age - introduced to the rivers and mountains of Idaho by his dad, while his mom encouraged his creative and musical side.  Moving to Southern California in the late 60's, Jon continued his journey of integration, blending his talents in the performing arts with the inspiration he finds in staying connected and in good relationship with the natural community here.  As an eco-musician Jon has been using a solar powered sound system since 1989, participating in many local environmentally conscious events and completing 3 CDs of original, bioregionally focused music and poetry.  Having played wooden recorders since the early ''70s and the Native American Flute since 1993, Jon started hand-crafting branch flutes 10 years ago, his Dryad Flutes highly sought after now for their quality of crafstmanhip, unique natural beauty and ecological integrity.  Meeting Sabine and blending their lives, talents and intentions together is an ongoing blessing for him - each day a new journey of how two souls who love the Earth, and each other, might make the world a better place through their combined creative expressions.
