LIVE AT LUCKY BARN: Dom Flemons, ‘Going Down the Road Feeling Bad’

Dec 22, 2015

LIVE AT LUCKY BARN: Dom Flemons, 'Going Down the Road Feeling Bad'

We've teamed up with the good people at Pickathon to present a season's worth of archival — and incredible — videos from the Pacific Northwest festival's Lucky Barn Series. Tune in every fourth Tuesday of the month to catch a new clip.

In the third video of the series, Dom Flemons and his trusty sidekicks lead the Lucky Barn crowd in a sing-along of "Going Down the Road Feeling Bad." Flemons dubs himself an "American songster" and explains that "before we starting making records, as a culture, songsters were the musicians that knew a bunch of songs and would play them for the community." (He also jokes about "folk" being a four-letter word.) In his plaid shirt and porkpie hat, Flemons lives up to that self-designated title and lets everyone stretch their wings a little bit on this one, with a fierce fiddle run, a bouncing brush breakdown, and a clap-powered chorus. 

Pickathon comes back to the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon from August 5-7, 2016. Click here for more, and stay tuned for an exciting season of Lucky Barn videos.
