As for Rob Ickes, the Nashville player has been named Dobro Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association 15 times. He has decades of bluegrass cred to his name, thanks to his work with veteran band Blue Highway. Together, they bring a mix of shouts, jazzy breakdowns and quickfire fingerpicking to the Mountain Stage.
