Ticket sales open for Dunmore East concerts, 27 and 28 Aug. 2016

From today, St Valentine's day, tickets (€20) are on sale for the concerts to be given by Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley (above) on 27 and 28 August at this year's Guinness International Bluegrass Festival in Dunmore East, Co. Waterford.

Festival director Mick Daly saw them perform in Raleigh, NC, at the Wide Open Bluegrass Festival in October, after the success of the Claire Lynch concert at Dunmore East last August had proved the demand for a sit-down concert event.

Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley have been nominated for a Grammy for their current album; this year's Grammy awards will be made tomorrow (15 Feb.). Rob Ickes has already received the IBMA Dobro Player of the Year award more times than anyone else. Last year it had been hoped that the duo might also come to Ireland in April, but their online tour schedule shows dates in England and Scandinavia but not here.
