Get Swept Away by Folk Music at the Clifton Center May 4
Folk music is one of the richest tools historians have when it comes to studying our past. The words in folk songs tell stories of the past and help us learn more about what shaped us as people. And this May 4, you can get swept away by amazing folk music at the Clifton Center.
Go to the Clifton Center to enjoy the Lomax Project. Banjo master Jayme Stone and Grammy-winning Tim O’Brien will be joined by other musicians to celebrate Alan Lomax, the famous folklorist.
The event begins at 7:30 pm, and you want to be on time to get yourself a good seat. The musicians will re-create traditional music and folk songs from days gone by during this unique concert event. Listen to African-American music, ancient ballads from Appalachia, old work songs, even fiddle tunes and more. Tickets cost just $23. You can buy yours at Carmichael's Bookstore at Frankfort Avenue.
Jayme Stone is a musician of unique sound stylings who blends the sounds of jazz and chamber music with traditional folk sounds. The Clifton Center is hosting this unique event to help bring folk music to life for the people of Clifton and to Louisville as a whole, but this is only one reason to visit. The Clifton Center holds events throughout the year to bring the community together. Clifton is a community that’s worth celebrating.
