Jayme Stone’s Folklife: The Lomax Project

June 1, 2017
7:00 pm

Jayme Stone has been dubbed “The Yo-Yo Ma of the banjo…” and his two Juno awards commend his unique melding of folk, jazz and chamber music. The Lomax Project, led by Stone, began with his 2015 album of the same name. This collaborative project focuses on the precious treasure chest of songs and musical pieces collected by folklorist and field recording legend Alan Lomax. The repertoire of Stone’s curation of the Lomax archive includes Appalachian ballads, work songs, a cappella singing from Georgia’s Sea Islands and Bahamian sea shanties, simultaneously preserving and reimagining this canon, which has provided a musical narrative for so much of modern American history. ½ Price Night for Students, tickets at the door only. Doors and dinner beginning at 6:00 pm
