Dom Flemons Prospect Hill on LP
Dom Flemons - founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and American Songster - has been engaging audiences from the green Carolinas to the ruddy Southwest with personalized interpretations of folk, blues, early jazz and rock, country, and original material. Where else can you hear Ma Rainey, the Beatles and the Band in one pyrotechnic set? Dom is a consummate showman, dazzling audiences with his slide banjo technique and animated presentation.
Flemons will release his third solo album Prospect Hill on Music Maker Relief Foundation. The 14-song set finds Flemons digging deeply into ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern folk music, string band music, jug band music, fife and drum music, and ballad idioms with showmanship and humor, reinterpreting the music to suit 21st century audiences. One Stop Country proclaims that Prospect Hill boasts “a classic sound steeped rich with history, Flemons has expertly taken us back in time while offering something fresh to our ears at the same time."
