Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley and Chris Jones & The Night Drivers - European Dates


Let me start my making it clear that not all dates will feature both Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley and Chris Jones & The Night Drivers but there are some shared dates so, for this reason, this announcement will talk of both with the dates for Rob & Trey and Chris Jones listed separately below.

Trey Hensley has been the recipient of accolades from the likes of Marty Stuart, Mike Auldridge, Earl Scruggs and Blue Highway. Gene Parsons of The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers said of Trey “Listening to Trey Hensley play guitar I realized I haven’t heard guitar playing this exciting since Clarence White. Wow!” Trey featured as guest vocalist on 'My Last Day In The Mine' on Blue Highway's album 'The Game'. Teaming up with Rob Ickes for their album 'Before The Sun Goes Down' has produced an album that will appeal equally to Bluegrass and Country fans - as for their version of Stevie Ray Vaughan's 'Pride and Joy'...if you have not heard it, rectify that as soon as possible!

Rob Ickes has more individual IBMA awards for his Dobro playing than I have fingers and toes (as a result of an accident with an alligator and the fact that I don't count so well) but add together the IBMA awards than Rob has won himself and the awards that he has been party to with Blue Highway then I could be counting all day.



Chris Jones & The Night Drivers comprise (naturally, Chris) Ned Lubercki, Jon Weisberger and Mark Stoffel. Chris will be known to many for his articles in Bluegrass Today, his distinctive voice as well as being a presenter on SiriusXM; like Chris, Ned Luberecki will also be known to many as a presenter on SiriusXM. Jon Weisberger (when not playing bass for the Night Drivers) is also the Chair of IBMA and Mark Stoffel is noted for his playing and as a producer and recording engineer.

Their CD 'Lonely Comes Easy' was very successful with nine Top 20 songs and their new CD 'Run Away Tonight' looks as though it will do the same and if you have listened to 'Live At The Old Feedstore' then you will not want to miss the opportunity to see them play live in Europe later this year.


As mentioned before, not all dates will feature both Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley and Chris Jones & The Night Drivers but there are some shared dates and these will be highlighted.
