WATCH IT AGAIN: Dom Flemons on African American Music Traditions in Kentucky

Dom Flemons and Brian Farrow at the Clifton Center in Louisville, KY. 

Last year we had the opportunity to talk with the American Songster, and a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Dom Flemons.   Joined by instrumentalist Brian Farrow, Flemons gave a live presentation based on African American music traditions in Kentucky and Appalachia.  The event was held and assembled by the Clifton Center in Louisville, KY.  Topics included Louisville jug music, the history of the banjo, and the importance of performing folk songs in a live setting.
