The Jon Stickley Trio will perform a free concert today from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Montezuma Park in Cortez.

The event is hosted by KSJD and the Sunflower Theatre.

WildEdge Brewery and Fenceline Cider will offer drinks for purchase. Food also will be available.

The event is free, and donations are suggested. Seating is first-come, first-served. No reservations are required. Bring a chair or blanket.

The Jon Stickley Trio is a progressive ensemble from Asheville, North Carolina. They are rooted in the traditions of bluegrass, but perform Gypsy jazz and folk-punk as well. Jon Stickley plays flat-pick guitar, Lyndsay Pruett plays violin, and Hunter Deacon plays drums.

According to Jason Shadrick of Premium Guitar, the band “combines the ethos of a new-grass power trio with the energy and dynamics of a runaway train. Stickley’s powerful flat-picking gathers influences from the greats such as Tony Rice, but also allows for other, more modern, sounds to creep in.”
