Jayme Stone brings an unusual guest into the house of jazz: the banjo. The young composer and banjoist has won two Juno awards with his genre-melding, border-hopping tunes. His 2017 album Jayme Stone’s Folklife is filled with his modern take on Appalachian hymns and Creole calypsos, and boasts features from Tim O’Brien and Moira Smiley and has earned glowing critical praise. Now, he’s bringing his unique sound to the Outpost to bring down the house with some acapella rounds and sing-along folk standards. The show is this Friday, Oct. 20, at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 to $20 at outpostspace.org. (Robin Babb)
