Meeting a legend at JKBF 2012

Many thanks to Johnny Gleeson for this photo of himself (left) and Rob Ickes, taken yesterday (Sun. 23 Sept.) in Tullamore, Co. Offaly. Johnny - himself a professional guitarist, and an excellent bluegrass dobro player - was at the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival attending the dobro workshop given by Rob Ickes, who has won the IBMA title of Dobro Performer of the Year thirteen times since 1996, including the last six consecutive years. In addition to giving the workshop, Rob was in Tullamore as a member of the A-list band Blue Highway, who headlined the Saturday night concert.
