Jayme Stone's Lomax Project

  • St. John's Episcopal Church 125 Canterbury Drive Aptos, CA, 95003 United States (map)

Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this collaboration brings together some of North America's most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle and re-imagine 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 new album is out now on Borealis Records, with collaborators include Grammy-winning singer Tim O Brien, Bruce Molsky, Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Brittany Haas, Julian Lage, Eli West, and more. Jayme is joined on tour by Moira Smiley and Community Music School alum Sumaia Jackson.
