Dom Flemons is a folk throwback with contemporary purpose. The Grammy Award-winning musician, who co-founded Americana darlings the Carolina Chocolate Drops, expands upon ragtime, Piedmont blues, and spirituals to craft a potent mélange of traditional music. Billing himself as the “American Songster,” Flemons aims to reintroduce folk and its indispensable histories to new generations. In duo formation, which features bassist fiddler Brian Farrow, Flemons’ subtleties resound. The multi-instrumentalist most frequently performs on banjo and has a penchant for focusing each note on the liminal zone between space and sound.
