Throckmorton Theatre presents an exhilarating blend of gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop with the Jon Stickley Trio. With roots in gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop in an “exhilarating all-acoustic swirl” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine) Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums. The three have fused their collective styles into a repertoire of exciting and innovative original music along with some captivating covers.
Riding the wave of their critically acclaimed 2015 album, Lost at Last, Jon Stickley Trio independently released a 5-song EP, Triangular, on December 2, 2016. With help from a successful Kickstarter Campaign, the trio was able to record the new full length album, Maybe Believe, with Producer Dave King (Of The Bad Plus). It will be released in May, 12, 2017.

ABOUT THE MUSICIANS
Jon Stickley is known for his rapid-fire flatpicking, and his ability to blend different musical elements from across the board to create a sound that is all his own. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, this Durham native has been in various bands throughout the years, including Colorado’s legendary Broke Mountain, and several Asheville based bands. The Jon Stickley Trio has become his primary focus, and the vessel through which he presents his original music.
Lyndsay Pruett is an extremely diverse fiddle player currently residing in Asheville, NC. Her daily life is a constant toss up of genres. As a member of the Jon Stickley trio, she gets to employ just about all of them, including bluegrass, swing, classical, Latin styles, country, and hip hop. Lyndsay got a BM in Commercial Violin Performance from Belmont University in Nashville, TN. Stylistically, she manages to compliment others’ music and add striking color to it through her improvisations and textural playing.
Patrick Armitage grew up Minneapolis MN in a family of drummers, and graduated from the Minnesota Center for Arts, after which he began studying under Dave King of The Bad Plus. After studying under King for six years, he joined the famed Minneapolis hip hop group Atmosphere. After a year of steady touring with them Patrick left atmosphere and moved to the Hawaiian Islands where he continued to play live and hone his skills in the studio doing session work on a regular basis. Patrick joined the Jon Stickley Trio in 2012, and is now based in Asheville.
