Rob Ickes

   
A Northern California native, Rob Ickes 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 instrumentís sonic and stylistic territory.

    He won The International Bluegrass Music Associationís Dobro Player of the Year award for a record-setting ninth time in 2007. The youngest dobro player on The Great Dobro Sessions, 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. 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. He also founded ResoSummit which is a three-day annual instructional event in Nashville featuring leading Dobro players and luthiers as faculty.

Rob Ickes - Essential Techniques For Dobro - 2 DVD Set
Award winning instrumentalist Rob Ickes has created a comprehensive course to help you master all aspects of the resonator guitar, from bar technique to fingerpicking rolls. He covers everything you'll need to hold your own in a bluegrass band, from fine-tuning the strings to achieving good tone, timing and volume control. You'll learn correct hand positions for fast and clean playing, powerful forward and reverse right hand rolls, basic music theory and all aspects of good bar technique. With Jim Hurst on guitar and vocals, you'll gain an understanding of how to play back-up rhythm and fills behind a vocalist, create effective solos, build chords and scales, and much more! Rob teaches and demonstrates several great tunes including: "Will The Circle Be Unbroken, Dixie Hoedown, Ol' Dangerfield, Sailin' To Hawaii, Monrobro, Reuben, How Great Thou Art, Flat Lonesome".
