From a Liberal Arts college in Massachusetts to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Patrick Olwell's journey has led him to become one of the great wooden flute makers of all time. His flutes are played by some of the top Irish musicians in the world, including Matt Molloy of The Chieftains and Seamus Egan of Solas. With a quirky sense of humor and the voice of a storyteller, Patrick recounts his humble beginnings as an instrument maker, living in a cabin in rural Virginia with no electricity or running water, and his slow climb to prominence as his flutes become some of the most sought after instruments in Irish music. 'The Keymaster' is a genuinely human portrait of an intelligent, passionate craftsman.
