Dom Flemons at CranFest in the Courtyard

GRAMMY Award Winner and Two-Time EMMY Nominee Dom Flemons is originally from Phoenix, Arizona and currently lives in the Washington, D.C. area. He is known as The American Songster since his repertoire of music covers nearly 100 years of American folklore, ballads, and tunes. Flemons is a music scholar, historian, record collector and a multi-instrumentalist. He is considered an expert player on the Banjo, Fife, Guitar, Harmonica, Percussion, Quills, and Rhythm Bones.

Flemons released his solo album titled Dom Flemons Presents Black Cowboys in 2018 on GRAMMY Award winning record label Smithsonian Folkways. This recording is part of Folkways 70th Anniversary and the African American Legacy Recordings series in conjunction with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.  

  "No album released this year has more to teach us about American history and how we depict ourselves. Its a song collection and an astutely researched study of largely invisible working men to whom we owe a great debt. With a mix of traditional and original narrative songs, Flemons is fearless in his explorations, high minded in his expectations and generous with his spirit." -WMOT 89.5 TN

The album was a finalist for a 2018 Grammy Award, spent 31 consecutive weeks on Billboard Bluegrass and charted on both Folk radio and Traditional Folk radio charts. Flemons was featured on syndicated radio broadcasts World Café and NPR's Here and Now to discuss the history of black cowboys and the new record.

In 2005, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops- the band won a GRAMMY for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2010. He left the group to pursue his solo career in 2014 and in 2016 the Carolina Chocolate Drops were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.

Flemons' website The AmericanSongster.com was selected by the Library of Congress for inclusion in the American Music Creators Web Archive. Flemons has performed with leading musicians such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Taj Mahal, Guy Davis, Mike Seeger, Joe Thompson, Martin Simpson and Boo Hanks. Hes been a professional touring musician for the past twelve years and has traveled around the nation and the world presenting traditional folk and roots music to diverse audiences.

In 2014, he released a critically acclaimed solo album Prospect Hill through Music Maker Relief Foundation. In 2016, Flemons released a duo album with British musician Martin Simpson, titled Ever Popular Favourites, on Fledgling Records. Flemons launched a podcast, American Songster Radio, on WUNC Public Radio and filmed two instructional DVDs through Stefan Grossmans Guitar Workshop. In 2017, Flemons was featured on David Holts State of Music on PBS and performed as bluesman Joe Hill Louis on CMTs original hit television show, Sun Records.

He's performed as a soloist at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Cecil Sharp House, the Grand Ole Opry, the Opening Ceremony for the National Museum of African American History and Culture, National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, Newport Folk Festival and represented the United States at the 2017 Rainforest World Music Festival in Kuching, Malaysia.
