Dom Prag at Ringwood folk club

Dom Prag is a young singer-songwriter from Southampton. Now is your chance to experience his blend of spellbinding storytelling ,compelling intricate guitar and wide range of songs. He moves with ease from traditional songs, sometimes sung unaccompanied, to modern folk classics by people like Richard Thompson and Paul Davenport. His voice is melodious and he holds the audience captivated as the stories in the songs unspool. His own songs can be a storm of folk rock, like ‘Unemployment Song’ or wry and amusing, like ‘Chemicals’, with its tuneful nod to Patsy Cline. His programme flows from haunting ballads to rumbustious songs of protest blending sadness, fury, humour and joy into one breathtaking demonstration of musical skill. His debut album, 'Young Man on a Ferry’ has been played on BBC Radio Sheffield, Somer Valley FM and many other radio stations.
‘Dom Prag will be big very soon…’
‘I recently saw Dom at Nettlebed Folk Club playing Richard Thompson’s ‘1952 Vincent Black Lightning (not on this album). Anyone taking on this classic song successfully needs to have great skill and precision on the guitar. Dom has both and certainly deserves your attention.’
(Graham Hobbs , Shire Folk)
Dom will be supported by the excellent, New Forest based folk duo Confluence whose music, on melodeon and cello, weaves together sweet folk sounds and melodies from continental Europe.
