Album Notes
A few years ago after a performance, a big tough trucker came up to Ed in tears feeling deeply touched and surprised by how hearing the flute had quietly and peacefully opened his heart. Best. Review. Ever. In today's world, we figure we can all use a little heart opening and peace.

Atayohkan is a collaboration between Ed Peekeekoot on Native Flute and Corbin Keep on Cello. Both have solid careers as solo musicians. They met at a festival when Ed was just beginning to think about doing a flute CD. Now, several years later, they are proud to release this creative work.The flute and cello augment and balance each other in unique ways as do these two musicians. Ed is a self-taught singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who cut his musical teeth playing country. A few years ago Ed, who is from the Ahtahkakoop Cree First Nation in Saskatchewan, began to explore his Native roots musically and started playing the flute. Corbin, known as "The Wild Cellist" is a classical musician who plays Carnegie Hall. Corbin's work on writing and arranging took this CD to a deeper level.

Cree words: These are all spelled correctly on the CD but we are going without the proper accents here because of the challenges posed by writing in another language.
Atayohkan is the Cree name for ancient Sacred Ones, wise storytellers who help Creator.
Waspewey means "Wake Up!
Makwa means Loons
Miyoskamin means Springtime
Ayiki-Pisim means Frog Moon
Yoho Wayatinahk means Yo Ho Valley
Kayas Saweyimikowin means Ancient Grace
Nikawiy Ote means My Mother's Heart

This album was recorded in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island by Zak Cohen at Woodshop Recording Studio with instruments made in the Cowichan Valley mostly from local woods. Ed's flutes were carved by Rommy Verlaan. Corbin's cello was built by Rommy's partner Zak Stolk and Corbin's cello bow was made by Reid Hudson. The CD art was done by Ed's brother in spirit, Ice Bear.

Ed and Corbin are very proud to present music which is, on every level, born of this sacred land.
