The Department of Music at New Mexico State University will host a cultural series featuring Jayme Stone at 8 p.m. Nov. 3 at Atkinson Recital Hall.

At an early age, Stone fell in love with the quirky physics of the banjo, which landed him long-lasting lessons with a series of maestros, from Béla Fleck to Bill Frisell, culminating in two Juno Awards. Stone has traced the banjo from Mali to Appalachia, and keeping with the global theme, his new CD "Room of Wonders" is inspired by folk dances from around the world.
