Two-time Juno-winning banjoist and composer Jayme Stone, will present “Jayme Stone’s Folklife” at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 2, in Cole Hall at Bridgewater College.

Stone’s music is inspired by sounds from around the world – bridging folk, jazz and chamber music.

The concert will include songs from his latest CD, Jayme Stone’s Folklife, as well as pieces from Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project.

Performing with Stone are Sumaia Jackson on fiddle, Joe Phillips on bass and Moira Smiley on accordion. Through songs, playing instruments and storytelling, their concerts are moving, inventive and participatory experiences.

In 2008, Stone won a Juno (Canada’s music award) for The Utmost for Instrumental Album of the Year and, in 2009, he received a second Juno for Africa to Appalachia for World Music Album of the Year. 

The event is free and open to the public.
