Trey Hensley plays his guitar from the top down…Rob Ickes plays his flat out. Trey is a young Tennessee guitar slinger blessed with a voice that evokes Keith Whitley, John Anderson and Merle Haggard all at once. Rob is a San Francisco-born Nashvillain who’s been voted bluegrass music’s best Dobro player an unrivaled fifteen times. In this edition of In Your Ear, you’ll hear these two master musicians share their formidable skills and ideas as we present our season premiere, with material from their Studio A session recorded in March of 2016.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity, inspiration and soul of live music. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity. Host Tim Timberlake and In Your Ear studio president Carlos Chafin produce the programs, which feature three acts, reflecting the diversity and range of these special concerts. The eclectic selections cover many genres -- including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country.
Production Funding of In Your Ear is made possible, in part, by... the Dean Foundation, presenting the Old Dominion Barn Dance, Digital Video Group, Infinity Financial Partners, Threshold Counsel, PC and Will and Molly Perkinson.
