Jon Stickley

This evening, Travis Book of the Grammy-award winning bluegrass quintet, the Infamous Stringdusters, once again takes the stage in part of his "quarantine project," The Travis Book Happy Hour. Tonight's episode, unlike those previously held, will in large part pay tribute to the late Tony Rice.

The episode will feature special guests, Jon Stickley and Lyndsay Pruett (Jon Stickley Trio) as well as Shawn Lane (Blue Highway) and will run through Tony Rice's deep repertoire of folk, Americana and bluegrass.

The Steep Canyon Rangers with Jon Stickley Trio on June 10, 2021 at Chautauqua Auditorium has been rescheduled to September 17, 2021. Please hold on to your tickets as they will be honored at the rescheduled show.

The title of the Jon Stickley Trio’s 2020 album, Scripting The Flip, suggested that guitar phenom Stickley has a knack for turning phrases inside out, and that same impulse is evident, too, in the way that the inspiration for the group’s latest Organic Records single — the enforced homebound idleness of quarantine life — led to its title: “In And About.”

The innovative and progressive Jon Stickely Trio crafts genre-defying acoustic music that is intelligent, joyful and unconventional. The Asheville, NC-based group has now teamed with Organic Records to release Scripting The Flip on April 3. The album is now available for pre-order.

Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) is thrilled to announce that Greensky Bluegrass, Béla Fleck & The Flecktones, Sierra Hull, Ghost Light, and Jon Stickley Trio are added to The 4th Annual Suwannee Spring Reunion lineup along with a host of other acts. The festival takes place Thursday through Sunday, March 19-22 at SOSMP in Live Oak, FL.

Sticks N’ Thorns is the new project from Leftover Salmon banjoist Andy Thorn and flatpicking guitarist Jon Stickley of the Jon Stickley Trio. Since their teenage years together in North Carolina, Andy and Jon have played together in numerous bands including the Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band (with Anders Beck of Greensky Bluegrass, and Travis Book of The Infamous Stringdusters). At the 2019 Telluride Bluegrass Festival summer Broke Mountain reunited amid rabid excitement (mostly their own).

The Jon Stickley Trio, one of the roots music scene’s most progressive and innovative voices, has released a video for their latest single, "Animate Object" after a premiere by The Bluegrass Situation.

Unlike larger festivals, Shoe Fest is a unique festival, in that it offers patrons folk-rooted music with multiple interactive experiences. The main focus of the festival is on bringing people of all ages together to relish in a carefree community where they can leave their busy lives behind and actually have a good time.

Steely Dan and the Grateful Dead are both American musical treasures – but couldn’t be more different in their approach to music. The epitome of precision and setlist free, organic, and loose.  Studio perfectionists and the omnipotent live music band. Yet in spite of these differences, many of us love both these bands. They’re huge parts of the soundtracks of our youth and present day. What better way to celebrate both bands then enjoying a merge of the two in a night of American rock-n-roll supremacy.
