About Jayme Stone:

Jayme Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments he found while travelling in remote Malian villages. He finds it with influences as diverse as Anouar Brahem, Bill Frisell and Toumani Diabaté. His Juno Award-winning albums, most notably Africa to Appalachia, both defy and honour the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music.

"I take back what I said about Jayme Stone."
– Steven Martin, actor

"The Yo-Yo Ma of the banjo."
Globe and Mail

"This is what the future of the banjo sounds like."
"Stone's banjo playing is a source of limitless creative expression."
No Depression
