CASPER, Wyo. — Storyteller, Hoop Dancer and flutist Kevin Locke will be performing at The Lyric on Sunday, June 19.

According to a release sent by ARTCORE, workshops will begin at 1 p.m. and Locke will perform at 4 p.m.

At 1 p.m., there will be a flute workshop where those ages 10 and up can “build flutes, learn breath and fingering and several basic songs” for a fee of $25.

Then, at 2:30 p.m., all ages can take part in a hoop making/dancing workshop, where “each participant will make a custom fitted hoop, decorate it with colorful tape, and learn a basic dance routine.” This workshop requires a $7 fee.

When Locke performs at 4 p.m., the workshops’ participants will be invited to participate in the concert.

A donation of $10 is requested for concertgoers, and all proceeds will benefit the Patricia Locke Foundation.

ARTCORE doesn’t usually present in June, but had the opportunity to host Locke after he performs at the Wyoming Interfaith Conference in Laramie this Friday and Saturday.

Kevin Locke is of Dakota descent from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Anishinaabe of White Earth. He is a Hoop Dancer, preeminent player of the indigenous Northern Plains flute, traditional storyteller, cultural ambassador, recording artist and educator, according to his website.
