In correlation with our current special exhibit, “We Are the Music Makers”, the Earl Scruggs Center and the North Carolina Humanities Council present an evening with Dom Flemons.

Our “From the Roots Up: The impact of American Roots Music” program takes place on Friday April 17th at 6pm through 7:30pm and will be presented by Dom Flemons, a native Arizonan and a true modern Songster who engages audiences from the green Carolinas to the ruddy Southwest with personalized interpretations of folk, blues, early jazz and rock, country, and original material. Dom is a consummate showman, dazzling audiences with his slide banjo technique and animated presentation. He was a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and is now embarking on a solo career with his recent album, Prospect Hill. Dom says he would like to use the traditional forms of music he has heard and immersed himself in over the years to create new soundscapes that generate interest in old-time folk music, focusing very much on creating music that is rooted in history but taking a new approach to modern music. Call the Earl Scruggs Center at 704-487-6233 or register online to reserve your seat.
