'Banjoist-Composer-Instigator' Jayme Stone

Jun 1, 2017

“Banjoist, composer, instigator” and two-time Juno Award winner Jayme Stone makes music that's been inspired by sounds from around the world. His compositions bridge folk, jazz and chamber music, and his albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling sounds. Songlines calls Stone "The Yo-Yo Ma of the banjo."
