We’re pleased to announce the musicians chosen to record during our March 28 Community Field Recording Open House, as part of Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project.

  • Fergus Daly and Joe Kollman
  • Joe Peters
  • Pearsongs
  • Green Room Rockers
  • Cody Hall and Rachael Yanni
  • Alison Haney
  • Richard Fudge
  • Adam Mackintosh

We’re capturing original songs and stories from our community using a simple, single microphone set up, much like Alan Lomax did over 60 years ago. Historic field recordings were done in one or two takes. There was no multi-tracking or special effects. The same ethos applies here. So using a simple, single condenser microphone, we’ll record the audio as well as lovingly capture it on video, and then make it available for audiences on our website and YouTube channel. What’s more, Jayme Stone and the members of his band will be available for coaching, mentoring, and musical support.

The Community Field Recording Open House takes place downtown at Carnahan Hall on Saturday, March 28. The culmination of Jayme Stone’s two day residency will be a live performance with his band, The Lomax Project, on Saturday night at 8PM in the Lafayette Theater.
