COLLABORATING WITH OTHERS
Jonny is an excellent option when it comes to adding Native and world flutes to your project as he prides himself on delivering clear, clean audio. He has over 200 songs recorded and can work with you to provide the best outcome.
PARTNERING WITH OTHERS
Jonny's passion is sharing the voice of the Native American flute with the masses and in doing so, welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations and companies whose values align with his brand.
I have worked with all types of artists and when Jonny was introduced to us there was concern that a flute soloist would be able to fill an arena of 14 thousand people, let alone capture an audience. From his first breath to his final note, our audience was transported to a place of pure joy. His ability to connect with our audience was transformative indeed and was the topic of discussion for days to follow. Jonny is a consummate pro who was easy to work with and even able to accommodate our requests for rough tracks to program our lights and sound design. Don’t miss an opportunity to work with our new friend.

Native Heritage Gathering, Inc. – Florida
Musical artist Jonny Lipford is a unique talent within the greater Cedar Rapids community. A Native American flute player, Jonny’s expression, timbre, and creativity are inimitable. My collaboration with Jonny came to be through the Corridor Jazz Project – an educational program through Jazz 88.3 KCCK-FM in Cedar Rapids. My student jazz band from Linn-Mar High School recorded a piece featuring Jonny on the Native American flute. This was one of the most memorable and cherished musical collaborations I have done in sixteen years as a music educator. An advocate for the Native American flute beyond performing, Jonny is well-regarded as a speaker, educator, and collaborator on the instrument and has written numerous method books for those interested in learning how to play. Jonny Lipford is a true master of his craft!
