Dom Flemons is a folk throwback with contemporary purpose. The Grammy Award-winning musician expands upon the traditions of ragtime, Piedmont blues, and spirituals to craft a potent mélange of American songster roots. Flemons’ aim to reintroduce folk music and its indispensable histories to new generations received warm reception via his hugely popular band, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, which he cofounded. In sparser duo formation, featuring drummer and vocalist Dante Pope, Flemons’ subtleties are given ample room to resound. The multinstrumentalist, most frequently helming the banjo, has a unique penchant for focusing each note, negotiating that liminal zone between space and sound.
