Dom Flemons, Kaia Kater, and Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton - PineCone

February 24, 2017
Fletcher Opera Theater

Dom Flemons, Kaia Kater, and Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton share the stage for one night only, spotlighting the African roots of the banjo and the impact that the instrument continues to have in old-time, blues, bluegrass, and other music traditions. Dom Flemons co-founded the GRAMMY winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, and now he is known as the "American Songster," pulling from traditions of old time folk music to create new sounds. African-Canadian artist Kaia Kater spent years learning and studying Appalachian music in West Virginia, and she’s also been influenced by the Canadian folk music of her hometown. Earlier this year, she was included in Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” Blues artist Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who transforms traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country music into the here and now, and he mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. He will be one of 20 musicians featured in the upcoming PBS special American Epic Sessions – a documentary presented by T Bone Burnett, Robert Redford, and Jack White.
