Jon Stickley

The full lineup for the 2nd annual Kaw River Roots Festival has been released to the public. Legendary artists Leftover Salmon and Grammy award winners, The Infamous Stringdusters will be headlining. Additional performers include Fireside Collective, Kyle Tuttle's All Stars, The Jon Stickley Trio, Daniel Donato, Opal Agafia, Chain Station, Pretend Friend, Sky Smeed, Lily B Moonflower, The Matchsellers, Jake Keegan Band, Tyler Gregory, Jenna & Martin, and Megan Luttrell.

The Infamous Stringdusters have a long storied career as a band spanning sixteen years of musical magic. You can say they are traditional folk musicians with bluegrass roots and style, or you can simply say they are the masters of jam improvisation and all things in-between, and wherever the music lands on your soul is where it lives and grows into your own personal utopia.

Fans anticipating the return of Bourbon & Beyond will be treated to an event that will be well worth the wait. Leading independent festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents has pulled out all stops to curate a truly one-of-a-kind weekend unlike any other festival experience – adding a full fourth day for the first time just to fit it all in – to be held September 15-18 at the Highland Festival Grounds at Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
 

Earl Scruggs Music Festival has announced the full lineup for its inaugural event taking place September 2-4, 2022 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina. Joining previously announced headliners Jerry Douglas, The Earls of Leicester and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band this Labor Day Weekend will be American banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck performing with his GRAMMY-nominated My Bluegrass Heart ensemble which includes Billy Contreras, Jacob Joliff, Justin Moses, Mark Schatz, and Bryan Sutton.

Suwannee Spring Reunion is thrilled to kick off the Spring season Thursday through Sunday, March 17-20, 2022. Folks of all ages will be gathering under the gorgeous, mossy live oak laden grounds of The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, FL for this beloved festival tradition.

Leave it to ace guitarist Jon Stickley and his eponymous Trio to start the new year with a single, “Take The Air,” that does for a 7/4 time signature what Dave Brubeck’s Paul Desmond-composed “Take Five” did for 5/4 some sixty years ago.  

All Good Presents is thrilled to announce the third edition of the 4848 Festival, happening July 7 – 9, 2022.  With both festival stages standing tall atop Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Snowshoe, WV, the event lineup features Greensky Bluegrass (two nights), Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Wood Brothers, Leftover Salmon and over a dozen more.

Back in the studio after beginning to return to live performance, Organic Records’ Jon Stickley Trio serves up another round of the acoustic guitar-violin-drum ensemble’s immediately recognizable sound with “Golden Eagle.” Combining the passionate intensity of in-the-moment improvisation with a witty, sophisticated approach to composition, “Golden Eagle” is a quintessential Trio number that goes a long way in explaining their growing appeal to fans from across the musical spectrum.

Jon Stickley hand-picked his musical partners when he started the Jon Stickley Trio, and despite its eponymous name, the group is very much a cooperative effort. For their latest Organic Records single, the guitarist-bandleader has turned over the leading role to violinist Lyndsay Pruett, as, together with drummer Hunter Deacon, they tackle her original composition, “Death By Rainbow.”
