Lomax Project is Mariposa Bound

Posted on

lomaxProjectLomax Project is the latest adventure of two-time Juno winning musician, producer, educator and collaborator, Jayme Stone.

Focusing on songs collected by renowned folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this musical reawakening brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, reinvigorate and re-imagine traditional music.

The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes and work songs collected from both well-known musicians and everyday folk ranging from muleskinners, roustabouts, sawyers, and prisoners, to homemakers and schoolchildren.
