George Tortorelli and Lisa Lynne

Flutist George Tortorelli performing with harpist Lisa Lynne

Flutist George Tortorelli and harpist Lisa Lynne can often be found at Gainesville’s Downtown Arts Festival each November.  You can also often find them performing at the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs on Memorial Weekend…that is when they’re not touring across the country with their New Age Music.  For many years George Tortorelli played music in a rock ‘n roll band.  These days he prefers the soothing sound of his homemade flutes from his bamboo forest around his Gainesville home.  Along with music partner Lisa Lynne, they’ve had a number of CDs top the New Age charts.  He talked with Donna Green-Townsend about the switch in his musical taste.
