This is the 10th Anniversary of the Seattle Shakuhachi Matsuri and we are very excited to be coming back after the pandemic. Kakizakai Kaoru is returning as one of our regular instructors and we are very happy to announce that he will be joined this year by Araki Kodō VI. Larry Tyrell and I will also be teaching, students and faculty will be offering their renditions of traditional works at the recital and concert, and Larry will be performing original compositions with guest guitarist Michael Mandrell. Oh, and all participants will get a fabulous commemorative T-shirt with original artwork by Hanz Araki!
