Jon Romer is an outstanding player and teacher of Native American Flutes. He enjoys performing solo and ensemble work, composing, and discovering new places for the beauty of the Native American Flute while honoring its traditional uses. After serving as Professor of Voice and Choral Music at Gustavus Adolphus College for many years, he moved to Cass Lake, MN where he was the first Director of music programs at Bug-O-Geshig School. He later taught music at the Leech Lake Tribal College.

Jon has performed across the country and has prepared students to participate in Native arts festivals from Washington, DC to Alaska. He has been featured on many recordings as well as documentaries and public television programs.

Mike Tangen was a teacher of music in Grand Forks, ND and Bemidji, MN. Mid-career he taught mathematics and served Bemidji Area Schools as the Director of Technology before retiring. As a guitarist Mike has had a wide range of performance experiences with many groups, most often playing a Martin D-35 steel string Folk Guitar. In addition to performing folk music as a soloist and with various groups, he recorded and performed regionally with "Mike & Maggie, Music for Children".

Together their musical sensibilities and combined musicianship allow the Native American Flute and the Classical Guitar to express and share the intersection of nature, humanity, culture, and the spirit of the Creator that is evident in their music. Roemer & Tangen appreciate opportunities to share their unique musical stylings with others.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
