When you think of the best dobro players on the scene today, many great pickers come to mind. Maybe Phil Leadbetter or Jerry Douglas or Andy Hall are on the list, but it definitely includes Rob Ickes.
Fifteen-time IBMA dobro player of the year Rob Ickes has collaborated with an incredible list of A-list stars in bluegrass, country, and more. He has performed and recorded with Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss, Earl Scruggs, Tony Rice, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson among others. As a member of Blue Highway, he helped define the sound of bluegrass as it entered the 21st century. Most recently, he has performed prolifically with the Grammy-nominated guitarist and songwriter Trey Hensley. They will be joined by bassist extraordinaire Mike Bub at our April 27th concert—this is one you won't want to miss!
