Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments he found while traveling in remote Malian villages. His Juno Award-winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music.

Collaborators include Casey Driessen on the five-string fiddle, guitarist Grant Gordy, who plays with the alt-bluegrass/jazz David Grisman Quintet, and former Punch Brother bassist Greg Garrison.

Stone’s latest album, Room of Wonders, explores music from Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria, Brazil, Italy and North America. The repertoire includes a movement from Bach’s French Suite, a Moorish sword-fighting dance and Stone’s lush, edgy originals.

Tickets are $15 ($5 for students) and can be purchased in advance at Buckskin Booksellers in Ouray, Cimarron Books and Coffee in Ridgway, the Coffee Trader in Montrose, or here on our website. We will also be selling tickets at the door.
