Jayme Stone and The Other Side of the Air | Friday, May 9, 2014

Two-time Juno Award winning banjoist, composer and instigator 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 and faraway lands. The album traverses the Cinnamon Route through Persia and India, revisits and reinvents melodies Stone collected in West Africa and includes a Concerto Banjo and Chamber Symphony.  In concert, you’ll also catch his quartet playing a Bach fugue, a Trinidadian Calypso, Bulgarian mountain dance and an Appalachian barnburner.
