“The Yo-Yo Ma of Banjo” in Tiverton

C—Spotlight—JaymeStoneTwo-time Juno Award winning banjoist and composer Jayme Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world. His brand new album, “The Other Side of the Air,” is a travelogue of imaginary landscapes, traversing the Cinnamon Route through Persia and India which revisits and reinvents melodies Stone collected in West Africa, and includes a Concerto for Banjo and Chamber Symphony written for Stone by Canadian composer Andrew Downing. You might also catch the band playing a Bach fugue, a Trinidadian Calypso, or a Bulgarian mountain dance. Stone has been aptly called “the Yo-Yo Ma of the banjo.”
