Dom Flemons and Daryl Davis: Building Bridges

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free
  • Dom Flemons and Daryl Davis exemplify how music can be both a tool for recovering forgotten and suppressed African-American history and culture, and a means to bridge the social and racial gaps that divide us. Hear their special blend of informed musical activism in a free, online concert on Sunday, April 18 at 7 p.m.
    Dom Flemons is a music scholar, historian, and multi-instrumentalist who plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, jug, percussion, quills, and rhythm bones. He is co-founder of The Carolina Chocolate Drops. Daryl Davis is considered one of the greatest Blues & Boogie Woogie and Rock ‘n’ Roll pianists of all time. He heads the Daryl Davis Band and made a name for himself playing in bands with musical legends such as Muddy Waters, Little Richard and Chuck Berry. Daryl is also an author and documentary filmmaker. His book, Klan-destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan and his documentary, Accidental Courtesy, explore his efforts to understand and befriend members of the Ku Klux Klan. Though Dom and Daryl will be performing individually, we hope we can get them to do at least one duet.
    Our digital doors open at 7 p.m. so that you can come and chat with your friends before the concert.
    Admission is free but registration is required. Please register at https://www.fsgw.org/Concerts, to get the Zoom link. Donations for the performers are cheerfully accepted. Suggested donation: $20 per listener. (If you feel generous and can afford it, a higher amount will help support the performers.) Info: Charlie Baum, [email protected]
