Joe Kendrick and myself had the privilege to sit down at the Spring Skunk Festival and have a conversation with Jon, Patrick and Lyndsay of the Jon Stickley Trio.
They generously agreed to take a break between afternoon and evening sets to let us satisfy some curiosity about their relationship with the festival and experiences of growing together as a band.
The performances were stellar and the stories gave us a peek into what makes such a tight trio tick!
It was a real treat!
Thanks to Joe Kendrick for making it all come together. Also thanks goes to the folks at "Camp Awesome" who let us crash their little fireside paradise to grab the footage in a comfortable and unique location.
Of course Glynn "Zig" Zeigler can't go unmentioned as he welcomed us with open arms to capture the real "Skunkfest" experience. His awesome crew of volunteers and production team really pull off an amazingly memorable event. One that shouldn't be missed!
