Dom Flemons

Widely considered an ‘American Songster’ for the modern age, Dom Flemons delights with tunes crossing regions, instruments, and centuries. Calling on traditional southern folk riffs, ragtime, blues, jugband music, and a fair dose of humor, Flemons harkens back to a time when ‘roots’ meant wherever one planted his or her feet, and plays with storytelling and traditional musical forms to create new soundscapes suitable for the 21st century American roots listener.
