UPDATE: Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project Coming to Massachusetts Nov 6-7-8

Back in June, I reported on a program banjo player Jayme Stone was working on, called “The Lomax Project,” here.  I guess he got his funding, as he’s taking it on the road, including three dates in Massachusetts:

Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax this collaboratory brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle and re-imagine traditional music. The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American acappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes and work songs collected from both well-known musicians and everyday folk: muleskinners, roustabouts, sawyers, prisoners, homemakers and schoolchildren.
