Grammy-winner Dom Flemons is musician, singer, songwriter, historian and slam poet. Carrying on the songster tradition, Flemons strives to mix traditional music forms with a contemporary approach, to create new sounds that appeal to wider audiences. He began his career as a singer and record producer in Phoenix. In 2005 he cofounded the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band that won a Grammy for its 2010 album Genuine Negro Jig. As a soloist, he’s performed at Carnegie Hall in New York and the opening of the National Musuem of African American History in Washington. On his solo album Prospect Hill, Flemons draws from a wide range of styles, including ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern traditional music, string band music, fife and drum music, and jug-band music. He’s performed, recorded and toured with such notables as Rhiannon Giddens, Guy Davis, and Martin Simpson.
