Mr. Firecrow’s accomplishments include: a Grammy in the New Age category, a Grammy nomination in the Best Native American Music Album category, six Native American Music Awards including Songwriter of the Year and Artist of the Year and a Telly award. His powerful performance weaves transcendent flute with Native American storytelling and traditional drumming, taking you on a journey into true American history. 

“Cleveland State is excited to have the winner of the 2010 winner of the Grammy Award for the  Best New Age Album Mr.  Joseph FireCrow on our campus,” said Tracey Wright, director of Special Programs and Community Relations. “His musical talents are astounding.  His music is said to have a transforming power. This is a cultural experience that you don’t want to miss.” 

Mr. Firecrow said, “The natural beauty of the flute evokes very powerful emotions. The traditional flute is social, not ceremonial, in nature and should always be treated with that in mind and spirit.”
