Bear Limvere, Native American Flute

Bear Limvere Bear is of Estonian and unregistered Colorado Ute descent, and grew up in the mountains of Colorado, spending many summers of his childhood in New Mexico. Bear’s love of music is probably at the deepest core of his being. He loves to share the gift of music with people. He has studied Classical Music and Jazz on the acoustic bass, and has played bass with the DSO, and various touring jazz musicians. Bear was introduced to the Native American Flute in 1990, and he was hooked. Bear loves the tonal warmth of wooden flutes; he creates unique music full of heart and soul. He has performed in solo concerts and with ensembles of piano, cello, guitar and other instruments. Bear’s music blends traditional Native American flute with the influences of Jazz, Blues and Estonian Folk music. Bear is also a visual artist; turning, sculpting, and carving wood; weaving traditional Estonian belts; and working in other media. Bear has been a pow-wow dancer since he was 6, and regularly goes home to Southern Ute Reservation for Beardance and other ceremonies. Since 1985, Bear was a founder and continues to serve as director of The Raven Dancers, a non-profit group that teaches Native American dance, music and culture to youth, while providing a “safe place” for kids and adults in a turbulent world. He served 3 years as Board President for the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys. He has served on the Board of Directors for the Front Range Wood Turners, and has served on committees for the American Association of Woodturners. bearlimvere.wordpress.com/music-store, store.cdbaby.com/Artist/BearLimvere
