My brand new album, Room of Wonders, is inspired by folk dances from around the world: Norway, Sweden, Brazil, Bulgaria, Italy and North America. The album features Grammy-nominated fiddle pioneer Casey Driessen, gravity-defying guitarist Grant Gordy, former Punch Brother Greg Garrison and special guests: Nick Fraser (drums), Kevin Trucotte (trumpet), William Carn (trombone), Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa).
"I take back what I said about Jayme Stone."
"The Yo-Yo Ma of the banjo."

“This is what the future of the banjo sounds like.”
"Stone's banjo playing is a source of limitless creative expression."
"Stone combines a jazz musician's sense of timing and sureness of touch with a pop musician's brevity and directness."
"Stone is the consummate team player... always right in the middle with his polished, inventive banjo playing."
"Stone's scope is far-reaching, connecting seemingly disparate cultures with a passion for music that runs through bluegrass, jazz; from the grit of roots music to West Africa."
