      Jon Stickley Trio Presented by the Ashland Folk Collective

      Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio, whos deep grooves, innovative flatpicking, and sultry-spacy violin moves the listeners head, heart, and feet. Its not your fathers acoustic-guitar musicInstead, Stickleys Martin churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted other genresall thoroughly integrated into a personal style, writes Guitar Player Magazine. Premier Guitar says, Stickleys trio is not a traditional bluegrass group by any means they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats as effortlessly as the old timey standard Blackberry Blossom. Stickley is a super-resourceful acoustic guitarist who uses the instrument in many surprising ways and whose timing is just flawless. Fiddler Lyndsay Pruett puts deep thought into her flowing solos, plus she adds little flourishes and sudden stops that elevate the music, proclaims Nashville's Music City Roots Craig Havighurst. Jon Stickley Trio announces a change in lineup beginning in January 2018 with new drummer, Hunter Deacon, who is both classically trained and boasts heavy jazz influences. Hailing from the ever-hip Knoxville, Tennessee, Hunter studied with drummer Keith Brown and received a BM in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Tennessee. Deacon then went on to complete a six month residency at a jazz club in Hangzhou, China where he performed seven nights a week. Since his return, hes played with Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, toured the country with Sam Lewis, and performs with guitarist Mike Baggetta. Stickley says about the seemingly sudden lineup change were really excited to add Hunters vibe to the mix, his creativity and willingness to experiment were two things that drew us to him, and Lyndsay and I were quickly surprised and inspired by what hell bring to the table. With inspiration ranging from from Green Day to Duran Duran to Tony Rice to Nirvana, Grateful Dead, David Grisman and beyond, the Trio is making waves with their unique sound. Along with releasing two full length albums and one EP in the past few years, the Trio has zig-zagged the nation, playing over 120 dates in 2017 alone. They are road tested and band geek approved! Dave King (of The Bad Plus) joined forces with Jon Stickley Trio to produce 2017s Maybe Believe and 2015s Lost At Last (which The New York Times called both respectful and free) in the bands hometown of Asheville, NC at the esteemed Echo Mountain Recording Studio. The Trio slipped a self-produced 5-track EP, Triangular, into the mix in December of 2016. In a time when a lot of instrumental music feels more like math than art, Jon Stickley Trio reminds us of the pure joy that can be created and shared through music, says Greensky Bluegrass Anders Beck.
