KEVIN BUDD has been building and playing pan flutes and silver flute
for over 20 years. He studied in Canada, the US, and Europe and has performed at over 500 events.

Canadian musician Kevin Budd has specialized in the pan flute as both a composer and performer for over two decades. A consummate wind musician, he also plays transverse flute, and recorder.

About his CD, he writes, "beyond the association of inhalation which is integral to a wind player, Deep suggests an emotional profundity, while Breath refers to the spirit. These songs are my ‘deep breath,’ an expression of profundity and intimacy in sound.”

An ancient instrument, the pan flute is used, in some form, throughout much of the world. According to Greek myth, it was invented by the god Pan as an instrument of consolation. The Romanian-style pan flute or nai played here has a single line of bamboo tubes which produce an extraordinarily clear, natural and haunting sound.
