A bluesy bluegrass virtuoso duo
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 (who also plays superlative lap steel guitar in the duo on occasion) and acoustic/electric guitarist Trey Hensley continues to delight and astound audiences of traditional American music around the globe. Since the duo decided to join forces and make their collaboration the focus of their touring and recording careers in 2015, after cutting their first album on Compass, "Before The Sun Goes Down" (nominated for a Grammy), they have continued to bring their music to venues near and far. Their second album on Compass, "Country Blues," released in 2016, testified to the growing diversity and expansion of their collaborative talents and repertoire, and since then the sky has been the limit. North Carolina old-time duo Chatham Rabbits are special guests.
