Rob & Trey head down under

rob_treyRob Ickes & Trey Hensley will be taking their duo powerhouse show to Australia next week for a series of shows in the southeastern regions of the continent. This will be their first visit to perform together in Australia.

Their tour will start and end in Melbourne with stops at the big Mountaingrass Festival in Victoria next weekend and a show in Sydney the following Monday. That first date in Melbourne will also feature a set from Australia’s bluegrass bad boys, The Davidson Brothers.

Rob & Trey combine their bluegrass chops, honed over Rob’s many years playing dobro with Blue Highway and Trey’s career as a guitarist and vocalist, with an openness to contemporary country and Americana music. They will be performing music from their two Compass releases, Before The Sun Goes Down and The Country Blues.

Stops on the tour include:

November 17 – Northcote Social Club, Melbourne VIC (with The Davidson Brothers)
November 18-20 – Mountaingrass Festival, Harrietville VIC
November 21 – Petersham Bowling Club, Sydney NSW
November 22 – Ferntree Gully Bowling Club, East Melbourne VIC


Rob and Trey will both conduct instrumental workshops on November 19 during the Mountaingrass festival where Mike Compton will also appear. Full event details can be found online.
