The first thing you need to know about the Jon Stickley Trio is that they are, in fact, a trio. While this seems obvious, it won’t be when you listen to the Jon Stickley Trio for the first time. It’s hard to believe that such a big sound can come out of a guitar, fiddle and drums, but see them live and you will be amazed. There are no tricks here (other than the deal with the devil fiddle player Lyndsay Pruett clearly must have made to play like that!), this band is just that good! Attempting to describe...Read More
Headed to a Music Festival in Mexico? Let us plan your Mexican Music Adventure!

We were super happy to be back in Colorado this Winter so we could...Read More
Ullrgrass Festival seemed like the perfect way to kick-off festival season in our newly re-established home state.

Golden is a beautiful town nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and Ullrgrass is spread between two iconic town locations – the daytime activities are held in Parfet Park, while the evening continues indoors at the Buffalo Rose. The Community of Golden shines strong at this festival, which is run...Read More
This review of Strings and Sol may seem long overdue. Although, by this point, I am sure most of you have read quite enough about it to know you are definitely not going to miss it in 2017. If you weren’t there, you are probably saying “Enough already. Stop sharing all of these epic moments and talking about how it is the greatest festival ever.” If you were there, you are probably saying “Please, share more epic moments. How did I miss some of these while I was there?” Seriously, every single moment is so incredible, you can’t possibly see...Read More
