Dom Flemons

Dom Flemmons

Dom Flemons is known as “The American Songster” since his repertoire of music covers nearly 100 years of American folklore, ballads, and tunes. Flemons is a music scholar, historian, record collector and a multi-instrumentalist. He is considered an expert player on the Banjo, Fife, Guitar, Harmonica, Percussion, Quills, and Rhythm Bones. 

Flemons has shared the stage with Grammy Award Winning musicians, such as, Taj Mahal, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Guy Davis, and performed with influential traditional music masters like Joe Thompson and  Boo Hanks. He has performed as a soloist at prestigious venues, such as, Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry, at some of America's most reknown festivals like, National Cowboy Poetry Gathering and the Newport Folk Festival, and for the Opening Ceremony for the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.  Flemons has also been featured on David Holt’s State of Music on PBS and performed as bluesman Joe Hill Louis on CMT’s original hit television show “Sun Records”.

In 2005, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops. The Chocolate  won a 2010 GRAMMY for Genuine Negro Jig (Best Traditional Folk Album). He left the group to pursue his solo career and in 2014, Flemons released the critically acclaimed solo album Prospect Hill through Music Maker Relief Foundation. 

Most recently, Flemons released his first solo album titled Dom Flemons Presents Black Cowboys on GRAMMY Award-winning record label Smithsonian Folkways. The recording is part of the African American Legacy Recordings series, co-produced with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
