Dom Flemons is a GRAMMY Award winning musician, singer-songwriter, and slam poet. Carrying on the songster tradition, he strives to mix traditional music forms with a contemporary approach. His most recent album draws from a wide range of styles, including folk, ragtime, Piedmont blues, spiritual, southern traditional, string-band, fife and drum, and jug-band music. 
 
In 2005, Dom co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band that won a GRAMMY for its 2010 album Genuine Negro Jig. Now, Dom tours throughout the United States and internationally as “The American Songster.” 
 
In February 2016, Dom performed at Carnegie Hall for a Tribute to Lead Belly. In September 2016, he performed at the opening ceremonies for the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. His newest album, to be released through Smithsonian Folkways, will celebrate the stories and songs of the black cowboys. Check out Dom on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXlycgoKRPk
 
Concert Tickets: $20 adults, $5 youth (18 & under) at www.aca.tix.com and at door night of show (6:30 pm).
 
Also on July 8, Dom will present two educational outreach events at the Grand Marais Public Library, both free and open to all ages: American Folk Music History Talk/Demo (1 pm) and “Rhythm Bones” Workshop (2 pm).
