Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley to headline Dunmore East 2016

Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley (above) have just been nominated for the 2016 Grammy awards for their album Before the sun goes down, on Alison Brown's Compass Records label. They are also expected to be in Ireland in April 2016 (see the BIB for 22 Nov. 2015).

Thanks to Mick Daly, organiser of the annual Guinness International Bluegrass Festival at Dunmore East, Co. Waterford, for a further reason why they could be smiling:

Just to let you know that Trey Hensley and Rob Ickes will be headlining the Guinness Dunmore East Bluegrass Festival 2016, with concerts on both Saturday and Sunday [27-28 Aug. 2016]. I had the good fortune to see them perform in Raleigh at the Wide Open Bluegrass Festival in October. The success of the Claire Lynch concert this year proved the demand for a sit-down concert event.

Tickets will go on sale on 14 February 2016 @ €20. In the meantime, tickets can be reserved in advance by e-mail (payment not required for advance booking). They have just been nominated for a Grammy for their current album.

As the BIB mentioned last month, Rob Ickes has already received the IBMA Dobro Player of the Year award more times than anyone else.
