A Juno Award Winners Extravaganza!
Jayme Stone’s Room of Wonders with very special guest The Ruth Moody Trio
FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2013 AT THE OCTAVE THEATRE, 711 DALTON AVE., IN KINGSTON, 7:30 P.M.
Two-time Juno-winning banjoist Jayme Stone thrives on unexpected inspiration: Japanese poetry, Brazilian literature, instruments he found while traveling in remote Malian villages. His Juno Award winning albums, most notably Africa to Appalachia, both defy and honour the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling music. Jayme’s ROOM OF WONDERS 4 piece group is a polyrhythmic journey to Mali with stops at other mysterious and wondrous parts of the world.
Ruth Moody is a Juno Award winning songwriter from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Although best known for her work with The Wailin’ Jennys — Ruth was a founding member and is still an integral part of the popular trio — she is an artist of exceptional depth and grace in her own right. Critics have lauded her ethereal vocals, impressive multi-instrumentalism, and her masterful songwriting. Written with a maturity and wisdom that belies her age, her songs are timeless, universal, and exceptionally well-crafted, all sung with an intimacy and honesty that is unmistakably hers. Ruth has performed in sold-out venues around the world, made numerous critically acclaimed albums, and appeared more than a dozen times on the U.S. radio show A Prairie Home Companion.
Tickets: $20 in advance and $25 at the door, available at Brian’s Record Option (613 542-2452) and Tara Foods.
