Two-time Juno-winning banjoist, composer and musical archeologist Jayme Stone arrives in Walnut Creek April 12 with a road-proven and much-honored band of artists dedicated to telling the stories of everyday people and musicians from around the world.
Stone’s Folklife follows the bends and bayous through the deep river of song and story and will summon them all up during their appearance at the Devil Mountain Coffeehouse that night.
We’ll be offering two free tickets to the performance to the first reader keen enough to answer a challenging musical question, so watch the site, Social Media and Flash feeds if you are moved by music presented in its purest form.
Folklife 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.
