\'Blue Stone Sky\' sprang into being in September 2006. Julie and Kevin Caran had been playing music here and there in Harrisonburg under the name The Professors Caran, but had long imagined having a band with more harmonies, more instrumentation, and more members. They began collaborating with their friend Sarah Cheverton, a former member of the regionally celebrated folk ensemble Windfall, and soon decided to stick together as Blue Stone Sky. The band member's influences include James Taylor, Carole King, Barenaked Ladies, Girlyman, The Ditty Bops, Adrienne Young, CSNY, Indigo Girls, Ani, and pretty much anything in the folk rock genre. Sarah, Kevin, and Julie all work at JMU, where many of the buildings are made of bluestone.
