Jayme Stone | Deering Live Episode 101

Jayme Stone is a banjo player, composer, producer, and educator. On any given day, you might find him in his studio reworking a little-known hymn learned from a field recording, producing a session with musicians from Bamako or New York, creating experimental soundscapes.

Stone has developed a process of trawling for understudied sounds in the more arcane corners of the world to see how they’ll land in his musical universe. His many collaborators have included Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky, Julian Lage, Dom Flemons, Bassekou Kouyate, and more. Guided by his own aesthetic compass and a desire to let his collaborators “make the sounds that only they know how to make”.

Fellow musicians frequently seek Stone’s advice, keen to discover how he’s managed to craft a career that both hews closely to his creative vision and finds success in the world.

    As somebody who went to a hippie arts school in Santa Fe, NM I really dig the creative approach. I’m a novice in this journey but was inspired to hear how legendary musicians helped you along your path, it inspiring to know how open the community is. Thanks for sharing!

    I heard John McEuen play a classical banjo solo during a break of the Dirt Band in the 70’s here in Grand Junction, CO and just loved it.
