Renowned for the ability to incorporate music from many different musical traditions, expect to hear folk, jazz, chamber and world music all within the same musical set!
Jayme Stone’s latest album, Room of Wonders, an album of music inspired by folk dances from around the world features musical themes from Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria, Brazil, Italy as well as North America. The repertoire includes a movement from Bach’s French Suite, a Moorish sword-fighting dance alongside Stone’s lush, edgy originals. Stone’s inspiration follows his musical travels… Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments from remote Malian villages, and features influences as diverse as Anouar Brahem, Bill Frisell, and Toumani Diabaté.
His Juno Award-winning albums, most notably Africa to Appalachia, both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music.
