About the artist

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
instrument's sonic and stylistic territory.

He won The International Bluegrass Music Association's Dobro Player of the
Year award for a record-setting tenth time in 2008; IBMA notes that he is the
most awarded instrumentalist in the history of the IBMA awards.

The youngest dobro player on The Great Dobro Sessions (Jerry Douglas and
Tut Taylor, producers), 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.
