Dom Flemons, co-founder of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, will bring his “American Songster Tour” to the Strand Theatre in Rockland on Saturday, March 23, at 7:30 p.m. Flemons’ repertoire covers nearly 100 years of American folklore, ballads and tunes. He is a music scholar, historian, record collector and multi-instrumentalist and is considered an expert player on the banjo, fife, guitar, harmonica, percussion, quills and rhythm bones. In 2005, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops, who won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk in 2010. He left the group to pursue his solo career in 2014. Flemons’ 2018 release “Dom Flemons Presents Black Cowboys” was nominated for a 2019 Best Folk Album Grammy and for Best Acoustic Album at the 40th Blues Music Awards. The album is part of the African American Legacy Recordings, co-produced by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History. Flemons’ website TheAmericanSongster.com was selected by the Library of Congress for inclusion in the American Music Creators Web Archive. Tickets for the concert are $15 in advance, $18 the day of the show.
