Dom Flemons + JD Wilkes
Cancelled (Wednesday 23 March 2022)
Orginal Date: Wednesday 16 December 2020
With great sadness, we must cancel the tour of Dom Flemons and JD Wilkes. As we’ve seen the surge of COVID cases in Europe there is too much uncertainty and concerns for them to continue planning this tour. We feel like the longer we wait the tougher it makes the position it leaves everyone in, the artist’s, the promoters/venues, and the staff & crew affected.
Please bear with us during this unprecedented period. We will be in touch in due course about your tickets. Thank you for your patience and co-operation. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
GRAMMY Award Winner, 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. Flemons is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, actor, music scholar, historian, and record collector. He is considered an expert player on the banjo, guitar, harmonica, jug, percussion, quills, fife and rhythm bones.
JD Wilkes is an American musician, visual artist, author, filmmaker and self-proclaimed “southern surrealist”. He is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist (notably on harmonica and banjo), having recorded with such artists as Merle Haggard, John Carter Cash, Mike Patton, and Hank Williams III. Wilkes’ latest solo album Cattle in the Cane (Arkam Records, January 2015) includes his own renditions of traditional tunes (mostly old-time mountain music), with performances by elder Kentucky fiddler Charlie Stamper (the brother of Art Stamper) on many of the tracks. In the last two years, Wilkes has continued to develop his solo project, having toured with Charlie Parr and The Tillers, as well as performing at the 2015 Winnipeg Folk Festival.
