Joseph is an accomplished pianist and his music is a must see. Wonderfully done!!! He explains the music and makes you feel comfortable. I suggest you position yourself to be able to watch his hands as he play, simply amazing. The wine is a wonderful addition to the concert.

My wife and I very much enjoyed an early evening solo piano program played for us by Joe Stone, the owner of the B&B, on his wonderful 1903 Steinway. Each piece was introduced with a brief description about the composer, the composition and where it fits into the spectrum of classical piano music. Joe Stone is a very accomplished musician...

During a trip on the Mississippi, we had the opportunity to visit the J.N. Stone House for a morning concert, followed by mimosas. It was definitely a high-light of the trip. Joseph Stone is a very accomplished pianist, and played a delightful program of Schubert, Chopin, Gottschalk, and Debussy. Moreover, he is utterly charming, and his introduction to the house...

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the 5:30 p.m. piano concert on October 20, 2015, in the lovely Antebellum Music Room of the Stone House. The music was superb and we were introduced that afternoon to the 19th Century New Orleans composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk. The pianist and our host, Joseph Stone, not only provided us with a choice of... More

We stayed at the Stone House in Natchez specifically for the piano program that was recommended by friends. The piano program and wine are included in the room charge for guests. Joe's narrative at the beginning of each piece explained the structure, gave insight to the composer and was a reflection of both his knowledge and love of music. The... More

Joe Stone played 4 entirely different classical selections and provided background for each. The evening started with a wonderfully chilled Reisling, a wine selection agreed upon by those attending. The music room setting was beautifully intimate. The environment was perfect. Joe is a great story teller and a wonderful musician.

We enjoyed the concert that was included in the bed and breakfast. I would recommend anyone in the area or staying at the house to attend the concert. Mr. Stone plays a nice selection of classical music with each piece being very different. He did a nice job of giving the history and explaining each piece.

What a treat!!! Joe picked four totally different pieces of classical music the play to the audience. The four pieces he selected were beautiful. Before each piece, Joe would discuss the piece with the audience and let them know the history behind it. Then ask for a critique and offered his expertise. We were so impressed that he even offered... More

We stayed with Mr. Stone for three nights over the 4th of July weekend. Upon check-in, he informed us that he could do a concert for us and the other guests one afternoon if we wished. We agreed that it would be a great idea and I am very glad that we did. Mr. Stone started by pouring us a... More
