Round Mountain with Jayme Stone in concert at The Performance Space

Show 7:30pm – 10:00pm | Tickets $12 adv, $15 door

Click Here for tickets

Nationally touring folk, roots and world music duo Round Mountain announce a hometown concert in Santa Fe at the Performance Space at La Tienda on November 2nd with Jayme Stone, known as the “Yo-Yo Ma of banjo,” according to Globe and Mail. Round Mountain is quickly becoming a household name in Santa Fe, winning over new fans and delighting regulars with what Seattle venue Egan’s Ballard Jam House calls “original roots music for a 21st century audience.”

Brothers Robby and Char Rothschild present many extremes; Bulgarian zydeco, klezmer and African rhythms, wild bagpipes, trumpet and accordion played by one person at the same time, and beautiful acoustic numbers. While their music is varied it is far from random. There is a solvent behind all these different dry ingredients that allows Round Mountain to blend their sound seamlessly: original songwriting with respect and love for their music.

Two-time Juno-winning banjoist Jayme Stone makes music inspired by folk traditions from around the world. His latest album, Room of Wonders, explores music from Norway, Sweden, Bulgaria,
Brazil, Italy and North America. The repertoire includes a movement from Bach’s French Suite, a Moorish sword-fighting dance and Stone’s lush, edgy originals.  This live music event, just outside Santa Fe, is not to be missed.
