Del Mar Foundation presents Rob Ickes & Jim Hurst ‘Bluegrass & Beyond’ performance Dec. 16
The Del Mar Foundation’s Cultural Arts Committee will present two highly-acclaimed bluegrass musicians, Rob Ickes and Jim Hurst, in a special duo performance at the Del Mar Powerhouse on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 7 pm.
Described as “a meeting of two of the mightiest musical powerhouses around,” this special performance features two artists whose roots are in bluegrass music, but who peform music that reaches far beyond the bounds of a single genre.
As the 14-time winner of the “Dobro Player of the Year” award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), Ickes is the most awarded instrumentalist in the history of the IBMA Awards. In 2010, Rob was awarded a United States Artists fellowship, an $50,000 grant awarded annually to 50 of America’s finest artists working across eight disciplines (music, theater arts, visual arts, dance, literature, media, crafts/traditional arts, and architecture/design).
Jim Hurst, who has twice been named IBMA Guitar Player of the Year, and brings strong vocal and songwriting talent to the stage along with phenomenal guitar chops. He last appeared at the Del Mar Powerhouse with the highly-acclaimed Claire Lynch Band.
