Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project – Muleskinners, Roustabouts, Sawyers, Prisoners,…

A new kickstarter project has been set up by banjo player Jayme Stone. The aim of the project is to rediscover the music that has been collected by Alan Lomax, who is taken as one of the most important influencers of the American Folk Song Revival.

For just 10 $ you can get the result of this project as a download – but you can also get a free concert by the band at your home if you pay more…so go and support this project and make it come true!

You can find the full information about the project on the kickstarter page.

Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project

The Lomax Project is a community of like-minded musicians coming together to rediscover their roots and collaborate. We’re multi-generational multi-instrumentalists. We have Grammy-winner songster Tim O’Brien, premier old-time musician Bruce Molsky, infinitely creative fiddler Brittany Haas (of Crooked Still), singer and body-percussionist Moira Smiley, captivating songstress Margaret Glaspy, neo-old-time guitarist and singer Eli West, guitar virtuoso Julian Lage, brilliant bassists Greg Garrison and Joe Phillips and special guests Mollie O’Brien (voice), Ron Miles (trumpet).

The album will feature many constellations and combinations of all these artists. You’ll hear hand-clapping, foot-stomping, twin fiddles, banjo, bouzouki, accordion and a swarm of singers crowded around a single microphone. The source recordings we used come from the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in Washington, the Association for Cultural Equity’s Global Jukebox and (mostly out-of-print) Lomax collections including the Deep River of Song and Southern Journey series.

The Lumineers – Great Songs – Great Concerts with…

I have recently found a picture of the Lumineers on the tumblr site – the trio with mandolin, cello and guitar made me curious. This folk-rock and Americana band was founded more than 10 years ago, but during the last year it became so popular that it even got two Grammy nominations for 2013. Their most popular youtube videos have got more than a million views, and the concerts of the Lumineers are mostly sold out today.

One of the most successful songs by the Luminieers is Ho Hey.

The Blogotheque has made several great videos with the Lumineers for their series A Take Away Show, here are the first two videos:
