Welcome Cheyanne Flemons!

We told you last week about the two releases expected this month from Dom Flemons, banjo player, singer, and historian of the importance of African peoples in the development of American music and folk ways. First up was his new album, The Black Cowboy, chronicling the experience of black men in the old west.

That was followed by the announcement this week of the birth of a daughter, Cheyanne Love Kinard Flemons, to his wife, Vania Kinard. She made her entrance on February 19 at 8 lbs, 3 oz, stitching out to 19.5”.

Mother and child are doing well, and we wonder how long before the little Flemons has her hands on a banjo.

Congratulations Dom and Vania, and a big Bluegrass Today welcome to Cheyanne!

About the Author

Pamm Tucker

Growing up in Oklahoma, music runs throughout Pamm Tucker's veins. Her earliest memory of music is standing beside her Grandma's upright, singing. "Trust in The Lord". Little did the 5 year old realize that this was the foundation of things to come. Being very active in 4-H, Pamm was elected as reporter at the age of 9 and held this position for many years. Taking extensive journalism marketing and free-lance writing classes while attending college helped to spark her interest in being a journalist. Her skills helped her acquire the position of journalist for the Northern Oklahoma college school newspaper. An Oklahoma native and no stranger to music, she has performed with the likes of Lulu Roman, Jean Shepherd, Willie Nelson, Tanya Tucker (no relation) Gene Watson and Charlie McClain just to name a few. Even today you can find her tapping her foot to every genre of music.
