Rob Departs Blue Highway

“In 1994, I had the tremendous good fortune of being invited to join Blue Highway as a founding member. I can't imagine a better opportunity for a young dobro player, and Blue Highway has been a stellar creative home for me for 21 years. So it is truly with a heart full of gratitude — and more than a little sadness — that I announce my departure from the band." Read the rest of Rob's statement here

Before the Sun Goes Down - Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley

big quoteI'm sure I don't make a true 'critic' since I'm already such a fan, but this album from Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley is a wonderful piece of work. And my songwriting side is truly overwhelmed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. —Merle Haggard

An exciting project hit the streets on September 16: Three Bells, a “dobro trio” CD by Mike Auldridge, Jerry Douglas and Rob Ickes. The album was recorded in a number of sessions during 2012, whenever their schedules allowed the three to converge to record together in a studio near Auldridge’s home in Silver Spring, Maryland.
