Dom Prag is a folk singer based in Southampton. After gigging around Brighton in his formative years in such venues as The White Rabbit, The Fiddler's Elbow, The Brunswick and Marwood Cafe, where he launched his EP 'Talitha and Other Songs' in 2015, he has since been taking southern folk clubs by storm. In 2016 and 2017 he played in Lymington, Winchester, Twickenham, Portsmouth, Southampton, Croydon, Milverton, North Boarhunt and Ringwood. He has appeared at Birmingham BE festival in 2013, Nozstock in 2014 and Folk East (as part of Brighton band 'The Knights Project') in 2016, and he will appear at Wickham Folk Festival in August this year.


Dom's music knits together British and European folk tradition with classical guitar: mining songs, poems set to music (Keats, Larkin), compositions influenced by Schubert and Shostakovich, bluesy riffs and raw vocals. 

His own songs start as poems and then undergo a transition into songs as the music is composed. Throughout 2016 and 2017 he worked on the monumental Ferry Tales project on the Isle of Wight where he collaborated with poet Robyn Bolam and fellow musician JC Grimshaw, setting poems to music. The work was showcased in spring and summer 2017.
