Description

In these extraordinary studio performances, Dobro virtuoso Rob Ickes (Blue Highway, Three Ring Circle) is joined by bluegrass prodigy Andy Leftwich (Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Three Ring Circle) on mandolin, and then by jazz pianist Michael Alvey.These powerful sets of richly improvisational instrumental duets are followed by two signature solo works that showcase Ickes' tradition-steeped but highly contemporary musical vision. Tunes include Angeline the Baker, Monrobro, Stanford and Son, Wheel Hoss, Lullaby of Birdland, Stars Fell on Alabama, Made in France, The Old Rugged Cross and more. Bonuses include an interview and photo gallery. DVD length: 67 minutes.

Note: You can use any guitar to play this style, although it would be best to have one with a high action or purchase a nut raiser for your existing guitar (see below).

Rob Ickes

A Northern California native, Rob moved to Nashville in 1992 and joined Blue Highway as a founding member in 1994. He is recognized as one of the most innovative Dobro players on the scene, contributing signature technique and greatly expanding the boundaries of the instrument’s sonic and stylistic territory. He won The International Bluegrass Music Association’s Dobro Player of the Year award for a record-setting ninth time in 2007.

The youngest dobro player on The Great Dobro Sessions (Jerry Douglas and Tut Taylor, producers), which won the 1994 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, he was also on the Alison Krauss & The Cox Family album, I Know Who Holds Tomorrow, which won the 1994 Grammy for Best Southern Gospel. Rob has released four acclaimed solo albums on Rounder, and a self-titled CD on Earwave Records with Three Ring Circle, comprising Rob, Andy Leftwich and Dave Pomeroy. An active session player in Nashville, Rob has recorded with a wide range of artists, including Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, David Lee Roth, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs, Patty Loveless, Earl Scruggs, Steve Wariner, Marty Stuart, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Marty Raybon, Jeannie Kendall, The Oak Ridge Boys, Claire Lynch, Lynn Morris, John Cowan, Harley Allen, The Cox Family, and Mary Chapin Carpenter. His recent work with Merle Haggard includes Haggard's 2007 release, The Bluegrass Sessions (McCoury Music). Rob is also a gifted resonator guitar teacher; his instructional DVDs are perennial favorites with Dobro students, and he founded ResoSummit, a three-day annual instructional event in Nashville, featuring leading Dobro players and luthiers as faculty.
