PRESENTED BY THE JCC ETHAN & GRETCHEN DAVIDSON MUSIC FESTIVAL
Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this concert brings together North America’s most 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. Collaborators for Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project include Grammy winning songwriter Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky, Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Brittany Haas, Julian Lage, Eli West.
“Our audience still hasn’t stopped talking about the Lomax Project! The concert was truly a joy from beginning to end: beautifully performed, charmingly presented, with much variety and clear scholarship and research behind the music selected. The stellar performers connected deeply with our audience and it was one of the highlights of our 2015-16 season.” Natalie Neuert, Director, The University of Vermont (UVM) Lane Series
