Ickes, Hurst team up at The Palms

Two of Nashville’s musical heavyweights, dobro master Rob Ickes and multi-instrumentalist Jim Hurst, will team up at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, for an evening of stellar bluegrass and acoustic music at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters. Tickets are $20.

Yolo County residents are familiar with Ickes, who lived in the area about 20 years ago and played in many different bands. After earning a degree in biology from UC Davis, Ickes headed to Nashville where his dobro-playing made him the talk of the town.

Ickes is a founding member of premier bluegrass group Blue Highway and became recognized as one of the most innovative dobro (resonator guitar) players, contributing signature technique and greatly expanding the boundaries of the instrument’s sonic and stylistic territory. Ickes won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Dobro Player of the Year Award for a record-shattering 12th time in 2012; IBMA notes that he is the most awarded instrumentalist in the history of the IBMA awards.

In 2010 Ickes was awarded a prestigious United States Artists fellowship in honor of his innovative work and in support of future projects. In addition to his work with Blue Highway, Ickes has released several acclaimed solo albums and is one-third of the progressive bluegrass trio Three Ring Circle (with Andy Leftwich and Dave Pomeroy).

Hurst’s unique picking style and mastery of bluegrass guitar wows audiences everywhere. He is a much sought-after player, even playing in Trisha Yearwood’s band in the early 1990s.

Palms audiences have seen Hurst during his days playing with Clare Lynch as well as him performing solo. Hurst is a master, who can take a variety of instruments (guitar and mandolin for starters) and find just the right way to add that instrument’s voice to a musical conversation.

Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, call 530-795-1825 or visit palmsplayhouse.com or robickes.com and jimhurst.com.
