Cobb Great Hall

South Carolina’s global Gullah ambassadors and the Billboard chart-toppers making “soulful honey to the ears” (NPR). Ranky Tanky, the soulful songs of the Gullah culture are brought to life by this band of native South Carolinians who mix the low country traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B. The group is joined by Grammy Award® winner, two-time Emmy® nominee, and 2019 Wammie Award winner Dom Flemons, known as “The American Songster” as his repertoire of music covers over 100 years of American folklore, ballads, and tunes. Flemons is considered an expert player on the banjo, fife, guitar, harmonica, jug, percussion, quill, and rhythm bones.
