The first Live at BluStage concert of the New Year will feature world-renowned multi-instrumentalist Dom Flemons, a Grammy Award winning musician, singer-songwriter, and slam poet.
Carrying on the songster tradition, Flemons strives to mix traditional music forms with a contemporary approach, to create new sounds that will appeal to wider audiences. In his recent solo album “Prospect Hill” (2014), Flemons drew from a wide range of styles, including ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern traditional music, string band music, fife and drum music, and jug-band music. He began his career as a performer in the Arizona music scene, where he produced 25 albums for singer-songwriters and slam poets in Pheonix. In 2005, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band that won a Grammy for its 2010 album “Genuine Negro Jig.” Today, he tours throughout the United States and internationally as the American Songster.
