Overview

Overview Jayme Stone's Lomax Project

Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this unique project, conceived and helmed by banjo virtuoso Jayme Stone, brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive and re-imagine traditional music. The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American acappella 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.

8PM | ADV $23, $20 mbrs. DOOR:$26, $23 mbrs.

This project is not about the collector—it's about the songs and the way Stone and his musical team take them to new, often harmonious, heights. - CBC Music

A transatlantic session with blood, guts and grit. - The Herald

An album of beautiful, intriguing, thoughtful music coming from a collaboration of outstanding musicians who apply their talents together. It's an album with a beginning, a middle, and an end... asking us, as listeners, to immerse ourselves in the idea of it all. It rewards that attention as much as it captures it, leading us to the music, rather than pushing us to it. - Sing Out
