Jayme Stone’s Folklife
With spellbinding singing and virtuosic playing, this album blows the dust off of old songs and remakes them for modern ears.
“Jayme Stone’s Folklife” follows the bends and bayous through the deep river of song, story and folkways. Evolving out of the “Lomax Project,” this gathering of versatile musicians blows the dust off of old songs and remakes them for modern ears. With spellbinding singing, virtuosic playing and captivating storytelling, their concerts and educational programs are moving, inventive and participatory experiences.

Jayme has posted three videos with songs from the coming album, as wel as a promotion video. I have compiled the four videos in the following playlist:
Songs: I want to hear somebody pray, Mwen pas danse, Hey lally lo
The three videos show that you can expect another interesting CD with great songs in great arrangements with great bajo picking and fantastic voices. You can support this project and get the CD as download or physical copy as well as other interesting rewards.

Last summer the EGMYO (European Guitar and Mandolin Youth Orchestra) has met in Germany for a workshop and two concerts.
The workshop was organized by the Bund Deutscher Zupfmusiker (German plucked strings association). Now a set of videos about the workshop and the concerts is available. The workshop took place from July 30 to August 8 in the Otzenhausen (EAO) in Saarland in Germany.
