42 Haggerty Hill Road – Rhinebeck, NY
Those of you who have been to Lyn Rosen’s home are already familiar with the comfortable seating, the welcoming hostess, and the extraordinary acoustics.
How lucky for us that Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley are going to be in the Mid-Hudson area on July 21. And how lucky for us that Lyn Rosen is opening her home to them that evening.
Ickes & Hensley are set to release a new album soon. This unique collaborative effort between two uniquely gifted musicians—Rob Ickes is a longtime, well established instrumental giant, and Trey Hensley is newly arrived in Music City, bursting with talent both as a vocalist and guitarist—is bound to be a revelation to traditional music fans on several counts. It is the vehicle which first introduces Trey Hensley to much of the bluegrass and country music world. Trey is a young man poised on the edge of an incredibly bright future, steeped as he is in much of what is best in the music. From his powerful yet sympathetic vocal interpretations of traditional and new material, his jaw dropping instrumental skills on both acoustic and electric guitar, and his own considerable songwriting talents, Trey is bursting at the seams with freshness and musical excitement. His resonant baritone voice is rich, expressive and equally at home with classic bluegrass, traditional country, or original compositions from his own hand or written by others. This album promises to be a breath of fresh air on the country music scene today, even while bringing Trey’s comfort and familiarity with traditional country and bluegrass music to the fore.
