Dom Flemons presents Black Cowboys
Saturday, March 2
The James Museum is proud to host a performance by Grammy Award Winning musician Dom Flemons. Known as “The American Songster,” his repertoire covers nearly 100 years of American folklore, ballads, and tunes. Flemons is a music scholar, historian, and multi-instrumentalist who plays the banjo, fife, guitar, harmonica, percussion, quills, and rhythm bones.
Dom Flemons presents Black Cowboys pays tribute to the music, culture, and the complex history of the golden era of the Wild West. In this single volume of music, the first of its kind, Flemons explores and re-analyzes this important part of our American identity. The songs and poems featured on the album take the listener on an illuminating journey from the trails to the rails of the Old West. This century-old story follows the footsteps of the thousands of African American pioneers who helped build the United States of America.
Doors open at 5PM. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
