Jayme Stone's Lomax Project
Unfortunately this show has been cancelled. Jayme is increasingly involved in the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow this year which means his schedule no longer allows him to be in Liverpool on 6 Feb. At this time we are not able to reschedule the concert. Please contact Box Office on 0151 709 3789 for details of how to obtain your refund.
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 honour the banjo’s long role in the world’s music.
In this brilliant concert, focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, Stone brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle, and reimagine traditional music. As The Herald puts it ‘a transatlantic session with blood, guts and grit.’
You’ll hear Bahamian sea shanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes, and work songs collected from both wellknown musicians and everyday folk: sea captains, cowhands, fisherman, prisoners, and homemakers.
A groundbreaking piece of work.
