Jon Stickley Trio, The Midatlantic

When: Thu., June 16, 5 p.m. 2016

Sure, the Jon Stickley Trio plays progressive acoustic music, but simplifying it as such does a disservice to the genre-bending Asheville three-piece. By combining Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking with the inventive violin work of Lyndsay Pruett and hip-hop-influenced beats of former Atmosphere drummer Patrick Armitage, the stylistic shapeshifters bound from traditional bluegrass to math rock while flirting with jazz, ska, and more. Wilmington’s The Midatlantic adds charming and catchy folk-rock, though the quintet’s instrumental work suggests it’s sometimes capable of bold choices, too. —Spencer Griffith
