Ride along with the exhilarating Jon Stickley Trio as they take experimental bluegrass to a new level.
Jon Stickley’s roots in bluegrass, punk, grunge and indie music explain why his music is both brilliantly innovative and difficult to peg. The flatpicking guitarist’s band members have equally diverse musical backgrounds. Lyndsay Pruett (violin) joined the Jon Stickley Trio after a stint with the genre-bending Black Mozart Ensemble, led by Béla Fleck and the Flecktones’ five-time GRAMMY Award-winning percussionist Roy “Futureman” Wooten. Patrick Armitage (drums) used to perform with rapper Slug (Sean Daley) and DJ/producer Ant (Anthony Davis) of the hip-hop duo Atmosphere.
Not only has the Jon Stickley Trio earned mentions from Bluegrass Today, Folk Alley and The New York Times, the band also appeared on NPR World Café’s “Sense of Place” series earlier this year. The group's second album, Lost at Last, was released in 2015.
