The "American Songster"—and Multi-Instrumentalist—from the Carolina Chocolate Drops

Description

He plays the bones. He plays the quills. He's a walking historical encyclopedia of early American music, from old-time blues and country to African American folk music of a dozen kinds. But he doesn't let that stop him from having a great deal of fun on stage. You may have heard Dom Flemons as part of The Carolina Chocolate Drops. Now he's got a couple of solo albums to his credit, along with a growing reputation as a musician who makes the past come alive in the present day. Says Living Blues: "No musician in recent memory has tackled so many different idioms with such sincerity and style as Flemons, making him easily the most gifted American songster of his generation.” Come out and dig deep into the American songbag with this unique musician—you'll be glad you did!
