Catch me at The Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC on April 17! I’ll be presenting their program “From the Roots Up: The impact of American Roots Music.” The wonderful “We Are the Music Makers” photo exhibit from the Music Maker Relief Foundation is on display there, as well, so it’ll be a can’t-miss event! And did I mention that it’s free to attend?More info over here!
Hello folks! If you haven’t heard by now, I’m putting out“What Got Over,” my exclusive EP being released for Record Store Day on April 18th!
To celebrate Record Store Day, I’ll be performing at Schoolkids Records in Raleigh, North Carolina. I live not too far away, over in the small town of Hillsborough, and I’m looking forward to playing songs from my EP for all the local NC folks.
For those of you not in NC, here’s a list of where you can pick up “What Got Over”!It’ll be stocked at different stores across the country. I hope you’ll support your local record store and also grab your own copy of my new release, which is a companion to my album from last year “Prospect Hill.” There will only be a limited number of copies at each store, so don’t wait!
Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of playing at a wonderful place called Caramoor over in Katonah, NY. My trio and I played in their beautiful Music Room for their Roots Music in the Music Room series, and we got to kick off their spring season. Getting the show off to a great start were Kristin Andreassen and Jefferson Hamer. No Depression featured a great review of the show:
“Dom Flemons is a force of nature and a showman — whirling around the stage from instrument to instrument, spinning yarns and telling tales of the great country and blues musicians from the past, alternating from original material to old time songs that would be lost forever if it wasn’t for his respect and care in keeping it alive.
With his set divided between both solo work and his trio that included Mike Johnson on percussion and Brian Farrow on bass, it’s a roller coaster of entertainment and musical heritage not to be missed. He brought Kristin back up to do some clog dancing, sing and play the harp and in an unusual moment of personal coincidence, spoke lovingly of Tom Paxton, whom he met at Folk Alliance.”
