Jon Stickley Trio Announces 2018 Tour Dates

Jon Stickley Trio have announced their 2018 North American tour. They will head out on the road on January 18 at Capital Ale House in Richmond, Virginia. It will keep them busy through April 28 at Some Kind Of Jam 13 in Schuylkill Haven, PA. Following the conclusion of tour, the band will play DelFest, John Hartford Music Festival, and Northwest String Summit. Joining the band on select dates will be Town MountainJenni LynOld Salt Union, and The Deer.

Fans will notice a change in lineup beginning in January with their new drummer, Hunter Deacon, who is both classically trained and boasts heavy jazz influences. Hailing from the ever-hip Knoxville, Tennessee, Hunter studied with drummer Keith Brown and received a BM in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Tennessee. Deacon then went on to complete a six month residency at a jazz club in Hangzhou, China where he performed seven nights a week. Since his return, he’s played with Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, toured the country with Sam Lewis, and performs with guitarist Mike Baggetta.

Stickley says about the seemingly sudden lineup change, “we’re really excited to add Hunter’s vibe to the mix, his creativity and willingness to experiment were two things that drew us to him, and Lyndsay and I were quickly surprised and inspired by what he’ll bring to the table.”
