Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley in Ireland next spring?

Thanks to Gerry Fitzpatrick for the news that Rob Ickes (left), who has won the IBMA Dobro Player of the Year award a record fifteen times, will be teaching the dobro course at Sore Fingers in England next spring (28 Mar.-1 Apr. 2016).

Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley (below) will also be touring in Europe (hopefully including Ireland) in the first week of April. More information will follow as soon as this becomes available. A week ago Rob announced that he is leaving Blue Highway, a band with which he has performed and recorded since 1994, including a headline appearance at the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival in Longford in 2012.

Gerry Fitzpatrick organises the monthly Cabin Sessions in Dundrum, Dublin, of which the next will be this coming Thursday (26 Nov.); a video of Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley can be seen on the Cabin Sessions Facebook. Gerry is also a member of Minnie & the Illywhackers, one of the bands taking part in January's Shannonside Winter Music Festival.
