$24.95
sku: VEST-DVD13136
A multi-instrumentalist, Dom plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum, and quills. As a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops Dom was able to explore his interest in bringing traditional music to new audiences. On stage, Flemons rolls from one instrument to another with a fearless attitude toward tradition and repertoire. As he now reflects, "The unique experience I had getting into the old-time music really informed the way I have been able to process a lot of it...A couple of things got me into thinking about how to smash all of it together, particularly Mike Seeger's way of taking different kinds of traditional music and putting them together to make new music. And being into the songsters like Lead Belly and Henry Thomas, I heard them and knew they weren't doing straight blues...these songsters fit into this broader string band and folk music tradition and then you have things like blues and jazz, and even gospel music, wrapped up in it." 76 min.   More Details...
