Troy Flemming ranks high among the many talented acoustic musicians on the Twin Cities scene today. He is an accomplished fingerstyle and classical guitarist as well as a versatile vocalist and yodeler. For over 25 years Troy has been performing for audiences as often as possible in all types of settings. As a longtime teacher, he has a passion for passing on his musical knowledge to others.
Troy grew up in the Minneapolis suburb of St. Louis Park, MN. He was raised on a steady diet of novelty songs, Alpine yodeling, train sounds, old-time music, and rock'n'roll. At fifteen he learned his first fingerpickin' guitar tune, Roy Buchanan's "Adventures of Brer Rabbit and Tar Baby," and was hooked!
After high school, Troy's guitar education continued with a year at McNally Smith College of Music (called "The Guitar Center" back in 1987). Troy spent the next 10 years in a string of bands, usually as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter.
In 1995, Troy went back to school and began working on a degree in music. He has studied classical guitar with James Flegel at NCC, O. Nicholas Raths at Augsburg, and James McGuire at the University of Minnesota, School of Music.
After surviving Y2K and having two babies, Troy's long dormant passion for Alpine music and yodeling came bubbling to the surface and quickly became a full blown obsession! Though his yodeling goals may be a little lofty (he plans to eventually take over the title of "Der Jodelkönig" [Yodel King] from his hero, Franzl Lang!), he is determined, and you never know what ten or twenty years hard work might produce!!
These days Troy stays very busy. He performs 2 to 4 times a week both solo and with his family group, "The Flemming Fold," on the radio, in festivals, nightclubs, senior communities, restaurants, and at churches. Additionally, Troy performs as a solo guitarist in all types of settings, he teaches as many as 40 guitar students a week, arranges music and records whenever possible, practices yodeling, studies the German language, and raises his wonderful daughters with his amazing wife, Sandra.

The Flemming Fold was a joy to work with. My volunteers loved their performance and the time flew by so fast, it surprised me when they were wrapping up their performance that an hour was up already.
