Did you know that the banjo was once an instrument that proper young ladies were encouraged to take up in the 19th century? Were you aware that its origins are West African? Jayme Stone brings light to both these topics, as well as some great music on his album The Other Side of the Air. Join the Juno-winning Toronto native as he returns home to celebrate this new release, and remind all of us why he’s been called the “Yo-Yo Ma of the Banjo.”
