Dom Flemons American Songster



by Lamont Jack Pearley On this 29th Episode of Talking Bout The Blues, I speak with the Mutli Instrumentalist Dom Flemons for part 1 of a two part interview, where he shares his connection to music and love of history. Dom Flemons is the "American Songster," pulling from traditions of old-time folk music to create new sounds. Having performed music professionally since 2005, he has played live for over one million people just within the past three years. As part of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, which he co-founded with Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson, he has 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. A multi-instrumentalist, Dom plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum and quills, in addition to singing. He says that he incorporates his background in percussion to his banjo playing. photo by Tim Duffy http://www.domflemons.com/ http://www.musicmaker.org/artists/dom-flemons/
