banjo innovator Stone returns with a new take on world music. His Lomax Project gives songs collected by folklorist and field-recording pioneer Alan Lomax a fresh vocabulary. The performance re-boots Bahamian sea chanties, African-American acappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes, and work songs from sea captains, cowhands, fishermen, prisoners, and homemakers.
