Our 23rd season of Garden Vibes wraps up with Dom Flemons, the “American Songster.” A multi-instrumentalist, Flemons plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum, and quills, in addition to singing. As a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African American string band, Flemons was able to explore his interest in bringing traditional music to new audiences. He plays old-time music with a contemporary approach—digging deep into ragtime, spirituals, southern folk, string band & jug band music, fife and drum, and ballad idioms with showmanship and humor.
