Jayme Stone makes music inspired by folk traditions from around the world. His latest album, Room of Wonders, includes works from Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria, Brazil, Italy and North America. His backpack must be overflowing with sheet music, ranging from Bach’s French Suites, to a Moorish sword-fighting dance to his own lush, original works. Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry; Brazilian literature; even instruments found while traveling in remote Malian villages. His JUNO Award-winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music. In a specially selected set for MusicFest Vancouver, this world-traveller will include many classical transcriptions, including arias, two-part inventions and fugues by J.S. Bach, as well as a passepied by Claude Debussy.
