SFS Presents: Jayme Stone’s Folklife
February 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$10 – $20
Jayme Stone’s Folklife
“Perennials for the People”
Stemming from the Lomax Project, Jayme Stone’s Folklife treats old field recordings not as time capsules, but as heirloom seeds passed down from a bygone generation. Planting these sturdy seeds in modern soil, this versatile gathering of musicians has cultivated vibrant Sea Island spirituals, Creole calypsos, and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes for contemporary listeners. Their concerts and educational programs are moving, inventive, and participatory experiences that prove folk songs are indeed perennials for the people.
