2nd Sunday Concert Series presents: Jayme Stone's Folklife

 

Join Jayme Stone with special guests Enion Tiller, Rich Zimmerman, and Eric Thorin for this extraordinary Sunday Afternoon Concert Series performance.

Two-time Juno-winning banjoist, composer and instigator Jayme Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world—bridging folk, jazz and chamber music. His award-winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling sounds.

Jayme Stone’s Folklife (2017) follows the bends and bayous through the deep river of song and story. Evolving out of Stone’s “Lomax Project,” this gathering of versatile musicians blows the dust off of old songs and remakes them for modern ears. With spellbinding singing, virtuosic playing and captivating storytelling, their concerts and educational programs are moving, inventive and participatory experiences. Think Sea Island spirituals, Creole calypsos and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes.

Admission is FREE--thanks to the Boulder Library Foundation. Arrive early for good seating!
