Dom Flemons — GRAMMY Award winner, two-time EMMY Award nominee, and 2020 United States Artists Fellow — joins us for the series finale of More Than Rhythm: A Black Music Series. Flemons has branded himself with the moniker “The American Songster” since his repertoire covers over a century of early American popular music. In the pre-show conversation, series host Dr. Birgitta Johnson and Flemons discuss his passion for storytelling through old-time music, his experiences with the award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, and his current projects that champion the Black contributions to American folk music.
