Tour Dates: Jon Stickley Trio Captivates Crowds
w/ Rapid-Fire Guitar, Sultry Violin & Drums

Jon Stickley Trio is excited to embark on tour for a plethora of shows this festival season! They have stops throughout the country including the White Squirrel Festival in North Carolina and Rooster Walk in Martinsville, Virginia this May. They kick off June in Nashville on their way St. Louis and then Colorado’s Front Range. Mid-June brings them back to the Southeast and they finish up the month at ROMP in Owensboro, Kentucky. In July, the Trio simmers in the Carolinas before making appearances at Red Wing Roots in Virginia and North West String Summit in Oregon. Mid-July sees their return to Colorado to the Dolores River Brewery and they close out the month in New Mexico and Texas before making their way back East in August with a notable show at Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage in Washington, DC. See the full list of dates below and stay tuned for more to be announced.

Jon Stickley Trio is making waves with the independent and fan-funded release of their 2nd album, Lost at Last [October 2015], which was produced by Dave King of The Bad Plus. The originality and sheer energy of this genre-bending ensemble serves as a welcome wake up call for those who experience it. 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 New York Times’ Nate Chinen writes “… there’s hardy cohesion among the players — no less on the Gypsy standard ‘Valse de Wasso’ than on ‘Darth Radar’ a turbocharged original with a ska upbeat and a shredding melody.” Premier Guitar Magazine took note of “Darth Radar,” calling it, “a rapid-fire take that moves from a serious ska beat to burning surf-style runs that would make Dick Dale proud.” They caught the attention of NPR’s Heavy Rotation, made an appearance on Nashville’s Music City Roots (where they performed three songs and received three standing ovations from packed audience), as well as recording with NPR’s World Cafe in the Trio’s hometown of Asheville, NC with live studio audience in a sold out show. It has been a whirlwind and the Trio is up for more with a new album they will record this winter.

Folk Alley premiered the video for “Rice Dream,” writing “Jon Stickley’s guitar harmonics and Lyndsay Pruett’s violin harmonics twine seamlessly together, creating an almost otherworldly atmosphere and the end result is a bit unnerving in its intensity.”

Jon Stickley Trio returned to the setting of where Lost at Last was recorded, Echo Mountain Recording Studios in Asheville, and performed for almost two hours for a live webcast on IAMAVL.com’s “Echo Sessions.” Watch the full show here →  http://bit.ly/Js3_Nov2015_IAMAVLEchoSessions_FullShow.

Donna The Buffalo is honored to Perform at this year’s
Americana Music Festival at Musicians Corner Centennial Park  
Saturday, September 21st at 3:15pm

More energized and focused than ever before in their near 25-year career, roots-music troubadours Donna the Buffalo debuted their first studio album (and 10th album) in five years, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday, on June 18th via Sugar Hill Records. The album proves the band as a consistent steward of Americana music, their signature sound—traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country—an eclectic and extraordinary melting pot of such. It debuted at #5 on the Americana Music Charts and has remained within the top ten ever since.

MCRThumbHear Donna the Buffalo LIVE on Music City Roots on Wed, Sept 11th, 7pm CST
“Donna The Buffalo is from central New York state, not Louisiana, but this widely loved quintet has woven that joyful, hip-shaking zydeco pulse into the DNA of its sound, and leaders Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins have wrapped that core vibe with hopeful, mellow lyrics.” — Music City Roots, Craig Havighurst

hdrJamBase recently hosted Donna the Buffalo in their San Francisco offices.  See their exclusive videos of “Don’t Know What We’ve Got,” “One Day At A Time” and “All Aboard” → http://bit.ly/1dZO5Lf

Kind Words About Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday:

 

“This set…highlights everything this consistent band does, and it has a warm, live-sounding production… The end result is one of Donna the Buffalo’s best outings…This is what 21st century Americana sounds like, a little bit of this and that from anywhere wrapped up into a poignant, jamming dance reel, a place where the past and history meet easily in the immediate now and everybody feels like dancing.” —All Music“Multi-instrumentalist Tara Nevins and Jeb Puryear, both ace guitarists, split vocals and writing for this band that’s country, old-timey, rock and roll, and well, just all around great. Best tune? Pick any one. Here’s a disc well worth your entertainment dollar.” —Vintage Guitar

“…This new effort revels in the kind of rousing enthusiasm that’s made the Donnas such festival favorites in recent years. The uninitiated ought to take note –Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday is as its title implies, the kind of album destined to make an everlasting impression.” —The Bluegrass Situation

“Herd of ’em?  One of our favorite bands, with what might be one of our favorite albums of theirs” —WNCW, Martin Anderson

“Toe-tapping country music” —Washington Post

“We’ve all had this experience. You’re in a park or at a music festival, with song in the air.  You look around and there’s some giant of  a man dancing with a tiny child.  All their cares in the world being twirled away into the sunshine.  You just grin, whether at the silliness of the adult or the carefree nature of the child.  That’s the kind of emotion the latest album from Donna the Buffalo, Tonight, Tomorrow, and Yesterday, elicits.” —Twangville, Shawn Underwood

“Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday” goes beyond being a good album, it captures all that makes Donna The Buffalo one of the most fun and electrifying bands on the concert circuit today.”–Wildman Steve Radio

“They’ve got some real chops in just about every department.” —The Nashville Scene, Jon Weisberger

“Next time Donna the Buffalo throws a house party, I definitely want to go. After decades on the festival scene, this energetic band has acquired a super-dedicated fan base known as the Herd — and at some point…I would love to see them all bopping along with [I Love My Tribe’s] irresistible chorus.” —CMT Edge, Craig Sheburne
