North American Roots Music Revival
Jayme Stone will present a combination of songs from his brand new CD “FolkLife,”
as well as songs from his very popular “Lomax Project.”
JAYME STONE’S FOLKLIFE
Sea island spirituals, Creole calypsos and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes.
“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, their concerts and educational programs are moving, inventive and participatory experiences. The new album will be out on Borealis Records April 7.
JAYME STONE’S LOMAX PROJECT
Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this collaboratory brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle, and reimagine traditional music. The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes, and work songs collected from both well-known musicians and everyday folk: sea captains, cowhands, fishermen, prisoners, and homemakers. The album features Grammy-winning singer Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky, Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Brittany Haas, Julian Lage, and more.
