Garden Vibes: Dom Flemons

Wednesday, August 17, 2016, 6 p.m., Terrace Garden

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.

Bring blankets, chairs, and a picnic, or purchase concessions from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Abbott’s, or the Eastman Museum Café. BYOB. Non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase on site. Gates open at 5 p.m. No rain dates. No refunds.

Kids 12 and under are FREE with paid adult admission. $10 adults, $6 members, $5 students and youth (ages 13–18).
