Traditional folk music gets update

Jayme Stone's Lomax Project showcase wide range of material gathered by folklorist

Errington Hall continues its 2015-16 concert season this Sunday with Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project, a tribute to traditional music from around the world.

Stone (banjo, vocals) will team with Moira Smiley (accordion, vocals), Sumaia Jackson (fiddle, vocals) and Tristan Clarridge (cello, vocals) to bring to life a repertoire of Bahamian sea shanties, African-American a cappella from the Georgia Sea Islands, early Appalachian ballads and fiddle tunes, and more.

Stone’s group is focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, who travelled to collect and record both the folk music of well-known musicians and work songs by everyday people, including sea captains, cowhands, fishermen, prisoners and homemakers.

Stone’s quartet will revive, recycle and reimagine these works in a show that begins at 8 p.m. Nov. 22. As always, coffee and treats will be available from the kitchen.

Tickets are $25 and are available in advance from Cranky Dog in Parksville, Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach and Errington General Store.
