American songster Dom Flemons will kick off the fourth annual Sounds of the Mountains concert series at 7:30 p.m., January 5, at the Willingham Theater in Yadkinville, North Carolina. Once again, the Blue Ridge Music Center and Yadkin Arts Council are partnering to present the series, which features blues, bluegrass, country, folk, and Americana artists.
Flemons cofounded the seminal and Grammy Award-winning contemporary African-American string band The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and has been integrally involved with the Music Maker Relief Foundation, an organization dedicated to preserving traditional Southern music, including the blues and string traditions of the North Carolina Piedmont. Big Ron Hunter, the world’s happiest bluesman, will open the show.
The second concert with Kelsey Waldon, January 12, will be hosted at The Ramkat, a music and performance space in downtown Winston-Salem. Two additional performances in the series with Front Country, January 19, and The Fireside Collective, January 26, will take place at The Willingham Theater.
The Blue Ridge Music Center presents off-site concerts throughout the year in partnership with partner organizations and venues. The Foundation proudly supports programming presented by the Music Center to preserve the cultural and musical heritage of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
