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 been taking folk clubs by storm all over the UK. In 2016 and 2017 he played in Hampshire, Devon, Somerset, Worcestershire, Hertfordshire, Yorkshire, Sussex, Dorset, Hertfordshire and London. He has appeared at Birmingham BE festival (2013), Nozstock (2014), Folk East (as part of Brighton band 'The Knights Project') in 2016, and in 2018, the Wickham Festival, The Rickmansworth Festival, Wimborne Folk Festival and Purbeck Folk Festival.


Dom's music knits together British and European folk tradition, 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.
