Hailing from the bluegrass hotbed of Asheville, North Carolina, the Jon Stickley Trio draws on their deep local traditions while also adding some other styles into their animated acoustic brew—which you’ll be able to catch them doing live when the perform at Empire State Plaza on August 24.

Combining bluegrass with elements of gypsy jazz, folk punk, and hip-hop, the band—Stickley on “rapid-fire flatpicking” guitar, Lyndsey Pruett on violin, and Patrick Armitage on sparse drums—released their second album, Lost at Last, in October. The disc won loud praise from the likes of the New York Times’ Nate Chinen and Premier Guitar’s Jason Shadrick, who called the track “Darth Radar” a “rapid-fire take that moves from a serious ska beat to burning surf-style runs that would make Dick Dale proud.”

Here’s Shadrick what was getting at:

The Jon Stickely Trio will perform at Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York, on August 24 at noon. Admission is free. For more information, visit http://www.theegg.org/event/jon-stickley-trio.
