Trey Hensley & Rob Ickes video from The Down Home

rob_treyTrey Hensley & Rob Ickes have posted this video from their performance last Friday at The Down Home in Johnson City, TN.

It finds them laying down a scorching version of Jimmy Martin’s Freeborn Man, which has served as a flatpicking showcase for many a fine guitarist over the year. Here Trey serves up a heaping helping of guitar hero, mixing bluegrass, country, and rock guitar stylings along the way.

Needless to say, Rob gets his licks in as well.
