A freelance flutist, improviser, and composer in the Seattle area, Leanna Keith delights in creating sound experiences that make audiences laugh, cry, and say: “I didn’t know the flute could do that!” She actively performs around the country in concert halls, bars, cafes, and classrooms - bringing along a menagerie of flutes that include her bass flute, alto flute, dizi, and shinobue - as well as a variety of electronics. Sometimes she creates soaring melodies, and other times she beatboxes and vocalizes. She also is dedicated to playing music by composers who are still living, and advocates for the usage of music as social activism. She currently performs with the vocal/flute duo Stack Effect with vocalist Kaley Lane Eaton, Keith/Larson Duo with guitarist Zachary Larson, Crows at a Crosswalk with bouzouki player Daniel Husser, Kin of the Moon, and the Japanese drumming ensemble Dekoboko Taiko. She is also currently the flute instructor for Cornish College of the Arts.
