Rob Ickes and Jim Hurst
Jim Hurst is a guitar-playing marvel, and Rob Ickes on dobro is flat out ridiculous. Consider this: The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) has named Rob the Dobro Player of the Year 13 times! A native of Northern California, Rob moved to Nashville in 1992 and helped found the highly esteemed bluegrass band Blue Highway. As an active session player and touring musician, he's collaborated with a long list of luminaries, including Merle Haggard, Earl Scruggs, Tony Rice, Charlie Haden, David Grisman, Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson, David Lee Roth, Dolly Parton, Patty Loveless, Peter Rowan, Claire Lynch, and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Guitar Player Magazine featured Rob on the cover last year and praised "his mind-boggling chops, spot-on intonation, and knack for both accompaniment and soloing." The article went on to say that Rob "possesses the rare combination of knowing and honoring tradition while simultaneously obliterating all the boundaries imposed by that tradition. Bravo!"
Jim HurstNo Depression Magazine calls Jim "one of the most versatile acoustic guitar players on the contemporary bluegrass circuit. He augments his flatpicking with hints of Merle Travis and Jerry Reed, bending and sliding until his notes take on an almost vocal quality." David Morris of Bluegrass Today puts it this way: "When I met Jim for the first time last summer, I was almost surprised to discover he has just two hands. He sure plays guitar like he has a couple of extras, using a blend of flatpicking and fingerpicking to play bass lines, melody lines, and support lines all at once." Jim has recorded two albums with Missy Raines and four solo albums, including this year's Intrepid, which features his brilliant guitar work and engaging vocals. He's won the IBMA's Guitar Player of the Year Award twice and has played with such Nashville notables as Trisha Yearwood, Travis Tritt, and Claire Lynch.
Catch these two stellar musicians making bluegrass magic at the Green Frog!
