Jayme Stone in The Toronto Star

Canadian banjo player Jayme Stone shared a series of banjo travelogues with our readers during his recent musical journey through West Africa. Jayme was traveling on a Chalmers Arts Fellowship grant to research the music of African musicians who perform on banjo-like instruments, and will embark soon on a recording based on these musical explorations.

Last week, The Toronto Star ran a brief feature on Jayme’s trip in which he capsulized some of what he learned in Mali. You can read the piece online on the Star web site.

You can read Jayme’s banjo travelogues here on Bluegrass Today.
