Jon Stickley Trio plays a style of music that defies description. Jon’s guitar style has evolved from bluegrass flatpicking into his own sound that spans from soft harmonic chimes to straight-up shredding. The band features Lyndsay Pruett (Futureman) on violin, who conjures up bewildering sounds reminiscent of Stephane Grappelli, yet not unlike the modern dubstep of Lindsey Stirling. On percussion, Patrick Armitage (Atmosphere) brings the heat with a hiphop groove that is unstoppable. The band comes together to create their own sound that can get big enough to shake the walls or intimate enough to draw tears. After a busy year of touring and playing alongside groups such as The Infamous Stringdusters, Greensky Bluegrass, Leon Russell, and Leftover Salmon, the Jon Stickley Trio is primed and ready to go. Don’t miss this mindblowing musical experience.

Bluegrass, newgrass, slam, smokin’, or jamgrass; call it what you will. Ask any member of the Steamboat Springs, Colorado based string band, Old Town Pickers, and they’ll tell you “We’re just having fun and playing fast.” Comprising four members, including Jay Roemer on guitar, Eric Baker on mandolin, Von Wilson on banjo, and Denton Turner on bass, all hailing from different states, the Pickers play that quintessential style that can easily be labeled “Rocky Mountain String Music.”
Just as the personnel that make up the band come from various places and backgrounds, so does the inspiration for the music. Genres that are easily identifiable while giving these boys a listen are Delta blues, Appalachian roots, Texas country, jam, and, of course, good old traditional bluegrass. With stand-out originals — which can be sad, humorous, and often both — along with playful covers of songs spanning decades and genres, an Old Town Pickers show is exactly how they would describe it. “Fun!”
Open Pic starts at 6:30 every Wednesday! Check it out before the show!
