Dominic Abrams Cambridge-born Dominic is an academic social psychologist who has had a passion for folk music ever since his father and Ken Woollard established the first Cambridge Folk Festival. In fact, as a 6-year-old, Dominic gave a rendition of ‘The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck’ on Mainstage 1. Dominic now lives in Canterbury, where, drawing on sources ranging from traditional fiddle tunes to country blues and gypsy jazz, he is a member of acoustic group 2point4. Recently, he co-wrote and performed in two musical histories of Faversham, Kent, 'The Skate Boys of Faversham Town' and 'Our Beautiful Town'. 2point4’s album of original songs, ‘Pretend Reel’, was launched in 2019.
