Take Rob Ickes, the most decorated musician in IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Awards history with 15 Dobro Player of the Year wins, and 2023 IBMA Guitar Player of the Year Trey Hensley, a Tennessee-born guitar prodigy identified as “Nashville’s hottest young player” by Acoustic Guitar magazine and you have Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley, a powerhouse GRAMMY®-nominated acoustic duo that has electrified the acoustic music scene.

Known for their white-hot picking (as Acoustic Guitar puts it:  “steel-string bluegrass with all the intensity of rock ‘n’ roll”) and world-class musicianship, Ickes & Hensley have collaborated with Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, Taj Mahal, Marty Stuart, Steve Wariner, Tommy Emmanuel (including touring and the release of an EP together), Little Feat, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, David Grisman, Molly Tuttle, Jorma Kaukonen, and Hot Tuna, among many others.  Their latest critically acclaimed album, Living In A Song, is available now, and you can also hear the talented duo on the new A Tribute To The Judds album and as members of the Taj Mahal Sextet on the live album, Swingin’ Live at the Church in Tulsa (out March 8, 2024).
