This week on Our Roots are Showing - host Steve DeLap will be interviewing banjoist Jayme Stone.  

From Jayme Stone's website:  

"Two-time Juno-winning banjoist, composer and instigator Jayme Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world—bridging folk, jazz and chamber music. His award-winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling sounds."
