Known for his work as a founding member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, Dom Flemons continues to perform as an accomplished solo musician, pulling from traditions of old-time folk music and Americana to create a sound that feels both classic and fresh for a new generation of listeners. His new album “Black Cowboys” is, in some ways, a lifetime in the making. First inspired by his family’s roots in the region, chronicles the rich, deep history of Black music in the American west, a history that has often been ignored or white-washed despite its massive contribution to the canon of American music.

Dom Flemons presents Black Cowboys pays tribute to the music, culture, and the complex history of the golden era of the Wild West. In this single volume of music, the first of its kind, Flemons explores and re-analyzes this important part of our American identity. The songs and poems featured on the album take the listener on an illuminating journey from the trails to the rails of the Old West. This century-old story follows the footsteps of the thousands of African American pioneers who helped build the United States of America.
