In conjunction with the Americana Music Association, as part of our popular ongoing Americana Music Series, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to present an intimate conversation and performance with Dom Flemons, moderated by Scott Goldman.
GRAMMY Award Winner and Two-Time Emmy Nominee Dom Flemons is known as “The American Songster,” covering nearly 100 years of American folklore, ballads, and tunes. Flemons is a music scholar, historian, record collector and a multi-instrumentalist, considered an expert player on the Banjo, Fife, Guitar, Harmonica, Percussion, Quills, and Rhythm Bones. In 2018, Flemons released his solo album titled Dom Flemons Presents Black Cowboys, which was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Folk Album and nominated for a Blues Music Award for Best Acoustic Album. The album charted for 34 consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums chart including top five and charted on both Folk radio and Traditional Folk radio charts, while Flemons was featured on syndicated radio broadcasts World Café and NPR’s Here and Now to discuss the history of black cowboys and the new record. Flemons has performed with leading musicians such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Taj Mahal, Guy Davis, Mike Seeger, Joe Thompson, and Martin Simpson, and has performed as a soloist at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Cecil Sharp House, the Grand Ole Opry, and at the Opening Ceremony for the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
