Multi-instrumentalist and singer Dom Flemons is a co-founder of the GRAMMY-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops. Flemons has recorded three albums under his own name with Music Maker Relief Foundation; the latest, Prospect Hill, draws on ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern folk music, fife and drum, vaudeville tunes, and folk ballads. The Boston Globe calls Flemons “a torchbearer in contemporary American roots music, blending his love of old-time styles with an interest in their history.” Bassist Brian Farrow and drummer Michael Johnson join Flemons at the Gardens.
