Dom Prag is a young folk singer/songwriter from Southampton. He first gained recognition playing at open mic nights and pubs in Brighton in 2013-14. He was noticed and gained accolades for his distinctive style. His voice, magical guitar energy and songs of passion, loss, comical social disasters and everyday fears, combine folk, with blues and classical influences, into gripping musical narratives. He has an interest in traditional songs especially those about injustice and his inimitable arrangements have won him new fans on the folk circuit. He plays a battered but distinguished classical guitar, which used to belong to his Dad, who taught him to play.
In 2015, while still in Brighton, he released an EP, Talitha And Other Songs which has since been played on local radio stations up and down the country. In 2016 he began playing at folk clubs and in 2017 he was part of the Arts Council funded Ferry Tales Project, with Bloodaxe poet, Robyn Bolam. He was the songwriter on the project and two of the songs he wrote for it are on his debut album, Young Man On A Ferry, released in December 2018.
He has performed at folk clubs from Teesside to Devon and all points between. In 2019 he will be touring clubs as a guest artist in his own right, to promote Young Man On A Ferry. The album has just been chosen as album of the month on the Richard Harris Folk & Blues radio show, broadcast on Somer Valley FM.
“Take it from me Dom Prag is a great fingerstyle player and songwriter with a fine voice and keen ear for a trad arrangement” – Chris Cleverley (folk singer)
“We were lucky enough to have Dom open up a show for Chris and me, and we were both really impressed with him. Great playing, singing and writing, and a lovely stage presence. Watch out for Dom, his star is definitely on the rise” – Julie Matthews (While and Matthews).
