DOM FLEMONS arrow

8:00 PM

pay




A multi-instrumentalist, Flemons plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum, and quills. As co-founder of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band, Flemons was able to explore his interest in bringing traditional music to new audiences. The band won a Grammy for its 2011 album Genuine Negro, and in 2013 he earned the title Living Blues Most Outstanding Musician for banjo from Living Blues Magazine.

Flemons has been performing solo since 2014. His music brings to life nearly 100 years of American folklore, ballads, and tunes. On stage, he easily rolls from one instrument to another, adding just enough historical context and commentary. As musician and ethnomusicologist, Flemons digs deeply into the African American roots of American folk music, jazz, and blues and has toured the nation and the world presenting traditional folk and roots music to diverse audiences. 

4:00 PM-5:00 PM Rhythm Bones Workshop- Learn the basics of playing the traditional Rhythm Bones. Hands on practice, set of bones included in $20 fee.

WILLIE WATSON

Friday, September 28, 2018
8:00 PM

pay




For nearly two decades, Willie Watson, formerly of Old Crow Medicine Show, has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. He’s a folksinger in the classic sense: a singer, storyteller, and traveller, with a catalog of songs that bridge the gap between the past and present.

His debut solo album, Folk Singer Volume 1, spans ten songs ranging from standards like Midnight Special to more obscure songs like Charley Jordan's Keep It Clean. On Folksinger Vol. 2, he interprets older songs, passing along his own version of the music that came long before him. 

Watson grew up listening to Bob Dylan and Neil Young before stumbling upon an old Leadbelly album. Combining that with his love of string bands with old-time banjo and fiddle, his style was set. Watson's skillful and subtle banjo and guitar accompaniments along with his soaring vocals is a pure revelation.
