Grab a plate of BBQ and enjoy traditional Blues Music at the St. Luke & Odd Fellows Hall! Recall the days when crowds would gather for dancing, community, and fellowship at what is now a nationally recognized historic landmark.

This year's event will feature eight bands on two stages, including Grammy Award Winning Folk Artist Dom Flemons.

Dom Flemons is a Grammy Award winning musician, singer-songwriter, and slam poet. Carrying on the songster tradition, Flemons strives to mix traditional music forms with a contemporary approach, to create new sounds that will appeal to wider audiences. He draws from a wide range of styles, including ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern traditional music, string band music, fife and drum music, and jug-band music.

He began his career as a performer in the Arizona music scene, where he produced 25 albums for singer-songwriters and slam poets in Pheonix. In 2005, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band that won a Grammy for its 2010 album Genuine Negro Jig. With the group he played at a variety of festivals spanning from the Newport Folk Festival to Bonnaroo, in addition to renowned venues such as the Grand Ole Opry.

In February 2016, Dom performed at Carnegie Hall for a Tribute to LeadBelly. In September 2016, Dom performed at the opening ceremonies for the National Musuem of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC and has been touring internationally. He has released two instructional DVDs through Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Workshop and has a new podcast called American Songster Radio and it is in conjunction with WUNC North Carolina Public Radio.
