Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley at The Blue Ridge Music Center
An intimate evening of bluegrass, county, blues, and western swing featuring award-winning dobro player Rob Ickes and musical prodigy Trey Hensley in the small, intimate, indoor theater at The Blue Ridge Music Center.

Based on a mutual love of bluegrass, country, blues, western swing, and other string band music of all kinds, the partnership of dobro player Rob Ickes and acoustic/electric guitarist Trey Hensley continues to delight audiences of traditional American music around the globe. The duo joined forces in 2015 when they released their first album, the Grammy® nominated "Before The Sun Goes Down." Since that time theyve performed in places as close to home as Nashvilles world famous Station Inn, as far away as Denmarks Tonder Festival, and at many prestigious US  music festivals, including Rockygrass, Wintergrass, Bluegrass Underground, and the Freshgrass Festival.  

Ickes and Hensley released their second album in 2016, "The Country Blues," which testified to the growing diversity and expansion of their collaborative talents and repertoire. They have also collaborated with other musicians, taking part in the 2016 IBMA Recorded Event Of The Year, "Fireball," featuring Special Consensus, and "Original," the recent Grammy®-nominated album by bluegrass giant Bobby Osborne. Their participation on this project was awarded IBMA's 2017 Recorded Event Of The Year Award for Osbornes version of Ive Gotta Get a Message to You.  

Ickes and Hensley's third album as a duo is set for release this spring.

Ickes and Hensley have shared the stage many stellar musicians, including influential mandolin master David Grisman, Australias fleet finger picking guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, and legendary American blues, folk, and rock guitarist Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna).

Ickes was a founding member and played with the critically acclaimed bluegrass group Blue Highway for 21 years. His fluid, lyrical, yet stinging style has graced the recordings and concerts of artists such as Earl Scruggs, Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss, The Cox Family, Tony Rice, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, and Reba McEntire.  

Hensley started his performance career at a young age, joining Marty Stuart and Earl Scruggs on stage at the Grand Ole Opry when he was just 11 years old. He has since played or opened for Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, Steve Wariner, and Peter Frampton, among many others.

In many ways, this musical partnership is the ideal vehicle for both partners. Their excitement at playing together continues unabated and their enthusiasm charges the creativity of their collaboration on a nightly basis.
