See a Free Daytime Performance of Jayme Stone’s "Lomax Project"

Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this "collaboratory" brings together some of North America's most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle, and reimagine traditional music.

The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes and work songs collected from both well-known musicians and everyday folk: sea captains, cowhands, fisherman, prisoners and homemakers. Collaborators include Grammy-winning singer Tim O'Brian, Bruce Molsky, Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Brittany Haas, Julian Lage and more.

Please be our guest for a 1-hour performance. The event begins at 10:00 a.m. and will end at 11:00 a.m.
