Dom Flemons is bringing back old-time music with unbridled enthusiasm. As a former member of grammy-winning Southern string group Carolina Chocolate Drops, Flemons has extensive experience with traditional African-American string bands, and brings this bluesy flavor to his new solo album, Prospect Hill. It’s his first since leaving the group, and it features him on banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, and jug. The album showcases his mastery of a variety of styles, including Jazz, R&B, blues, and also includes a few original tracks.
Flemons is known for his outrageous playing style and energy, so make sure to see him at Club Cafe on September 28th. In the meantime, check out our exclusive premiere of the video of his new song off of Prospect Hill, “Have I Stayed Away Too Long.”
