Jayme Stone’s Folklife

June 2, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

- $20 – $25

 

 

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Jayme Stone, on Friday, June 2, 2017.  Two time Juno winning banjoist, composer, and instigator Jayme Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world, bridging folk, jazz, and chamber music.  His award winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling sounds.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m.  All tickets are general admission seating.  Tickets are $20 in Advance and $25 at the Door.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees may apply.

 

 

Jayme Stone’s Folklife follows the bends and bayous through the deep river of song and story.  Evolving out of Stone’s “Lomax Project”, this gathering of versatile musicians blows the dust off of old songs and remakes them for modern ears.  With spellbinding singing, virtuosic playing, and captivating storytelling, the concerts and educational programs are moving, inventive, and participatory experiences.  Think Sea Island spirituals, Creole calypsos, and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes.  Stone is the consummate collaborator, unearthing musical artifacts and magnetizing extraordinary artists to help rekindle these understudied sounds.
