Larry Gralnik (Tahoe Larry)

My journey with the flute began many years ago when I stopped at a truck stop in Northern New Mexico. As I was getting coffee and stuff for the next couple hundred miles of my trip, I saw in a glass case, a very simple wooden flute. It was made out of Cedar, I was immediately taken by this simple flute and bought it there on the spot and brought it into my truck. I travelled with that flute in my truck for a long time.
With my love of woodworking and music, I found the opportunity to craft my first Cedar flute. At that point , that little out of tune piece of wood that I made sing with my breath, started me on a journey that only other flute makers would know about. It became an obsession and addiction. A love of an instrument that spoke to my very soul!
