Native American flutist Scott August will perform a mix of world and ambient music at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Unitarian Fellowship, 87 Fourth St., Ashland. August is an award-winning composer known for his evocative soundscapes that capture the ambiance of the American Southwest.
His mastery of Native American and Anasazi flute styles has garnered such awards as the Native American Music Award and Indian Summer Music Award.

His 2010 "Radiant Sky" was nominated for best New Age album of the year.
A multi-instrumentalist, August is touring in support of his new CD, "Hidden Journey," a musical adventure of Native American and ancient Anasazi flutes, tribal drums, Latin guitars, keys and an assortment of world instruments.
August will lead a workshop from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Geos Building, 84 Fourth St. The workshop will cover all levels of Native American and Anasazi flute styles. The cost is $35.
