It's always a bonus when one is web surfing and you come across something of value on a subject you enjoy that has been around for awhile but you somehow missed it.
No doubt just about any member of the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association has seen this, but I don't really think about visiting their site very often since I'm 3000 miles away, link below to a really good interview with Rob Ickes from Dec. 2011 on Hudson Valley's site.
Along with knowing Rob on a casual basis for years and taking multiple classes and workshops from him I thought I'd seen just about everything out there in print, and I'm glad I came across something new to me with this piece.
A lot of good sutff here:
John Lawless just put up an article on the Bluegrass Today website about the forthcoming "Three Bells" release, (September 16). Some quotes from Jerry and Rob are included.
This will be the dobro recorded event of the year!
"That" season is upon us as of about 12:09
I got a chance to catch Rob and Blue Highway at Isis in Asheville this past Friday. What an awesome show. The more I listen to their latest project, the more I love it - especially "There's Been A Change of Faith in Tennessee".
