Dom Flemons – New Voice
As a resolute preservationist, storyteller, and multi-instrumentalist, Dom Flemons has long set himself apart by finding forgotten folk songs and making them live again. Known as “The American Songster,” his repertoire covers over 100 years of American roots music. Flemons’ work has been recognized with a Grammy, two Emmy nominations, a USA Fellowship Award, and inclusion in an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
His explorations of both American Roots music and generations of underreported Black life have revealed an artist who’s deeply interested in telling the stories we need to hear, as well as giving us a musician who can play, well, pretty much anything. – Americana Highways
