Dom Flemons to play CT's Outer Space / CTNow

Bookmark and Share

Dom Flemons, formerly of the Grammy-winning folk troupe Carolina Chocolate Drops, deals in infectious, danceable fun as well as authenticity and solid musicianship, mixing his clawhammered banjo with fiddles, tight harmony vocals, woodwinds, harmonicas and even tasteful electric guitars. Prospect Hill, his debut album, offers plainspoked midtempo blues ("Hot Chicken"), second-line backbeats ("Georgia Drumbeat"), expressive, throwback rags ("San Francisco Baby") and tongue-twister romantic episodes ("It's a Good Thing") from across the American south. Dom Flemons Trio performs at Hamden, CT's Outer Space on Wednesday, October 8th at 8:30pm.
