RAC Presents Stone Quartet, with Jayme Stone, Banjo
Two-time Juno-winning banjoist Jayme Stone makes music inspired by traditions from around the world, bridging folk, jazz, chamber and world music.
His recording of Room of Wonders explores music from Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria, Brazil, Italy and North America. The repertoire includes a movement from Bachʼs French Suite, a Moorish sword-fighting dance and Stoneʼs lush, edgy originals.
"This is what the future of the banjo sounds like." - SONGLINES
Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments he found while traveling in remote Malian villages.
He finds it with influences as diverse as Anouar Brahem, Bill Frisell, and Toumani Diabaté.
His Juno Award-winning albums, most notably Africa to Appalachia, both defy and honor the banjoʼs long role in the worldʼs music, turning historical connections into compelling music.
Jayme Stone (banjo) will be joined by:
Kevin Turcotte (trumpet)
Andrew Downing ('cello)
