The American Songster Dom Flemons’ October tour will include three performances in NYC:
* October 4 in Madison Square Park
* October 11 at SubCulture
* and October 24
as part of the Cabinet of Wonders at City Winery, also featuring Eric
Andersen, Mac McCaughan (of Superchunk), Eugene Mirman, Dani Shapiro,
and Sarah Vowell.
Cabinet of Wonders has been picked up by NPR as a syndicated program and is hosted by Wesley Stace.
Flemons last performed in NYC at Lincoln Center Out of Doors in August.
He earlier discussed what it means to be the American Songster in an
extended interview with Terry Gross on NPR Fresh Air.
A founding member of the GRAMMY-winning, Newport Folk Festival-playing
Carolina Chocolate Drops, Flemons lived in NYC until last year, when he
made the move back to North Carolina. Here’s what others are saying
about the new album ‘Prospect Hill,’ which features a guest spot from
New Yorker Guy Davis:
-Robin Denselow, The Guardian (UK), July 28, 2014
-Clive Davis, The Times (UK), July 25, 2014
“Flemons’ harmonica-heavy, foot-tapping folk makes for the perfect hot summer soundtrack.”
-Dacey Orr, Paste, June 2, 2014
“This is interracial hoedown music, irresistibly delivered with a wink
and a strut, and it sounds unlike anything else on the market today.”
-John Morthland, Wondering Sound / eMusic, July 25, 2014
“Dom Flemons satisfied an old-time craving.”
-Chris Parton, CMT Edge, June 4, 2014
“A mix of traditional and original songs that explore different moods
and strains of Americana… from both the head and the heart.”
-James Reed, Boston Globe, June 26, 2014
