"Think Sea Island spirituals, Creole calypsos and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes."

Jayme Stone's Folklife album (2017) 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. NPR calls it "A fresh contemporary take on musical treasures."

Two-time Juno-winning banjoist and composer 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.

Joining Jayme (banjo, voice) on the Lopez stage will be Moira Smiley (voice, accordion), Sumaia Jackson (fiddle, voice), and Joe Phillips (bass, voice).
