Grammy award winner and two-time Emmy nominee Dom Flemons has branded the moniker “The American Songster” since his repertoire of music covers over 100 years of early American popular music. Before pursuing a solo career, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops who won a Grammy for “Best Traditional Folk Album” in 2010. An expert player of the banjo, guitar, harmonica, jug, percussion, quills, fife, and rhythm bones, Flemons will perform in the Bing Studio from his 2018 Grammy-nominated album Dom Flemons Presents Black Cowboys.
