Jason Eady, with Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley
- This event has passed.
Jason Eady returns to Natalie’s along with Grammy Award nominated duo Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley to celebrate the release of “I Travel On”, Eady’s seventh album. Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist Eady has brought a rare balance of unguarded honesty and poetic sophistication to his songwriting.The partnership of dobro player Rob Ickes and acoustic/electric guitarist Trey Hensley continues to delight and astound audiences of traditional American music around the globe.
With his catalog spanning from blues-infused Americana to bare-bones reimagining of classic country, Eady’s seventh full-length takes on a looser, livelier, more groove-driven sound than ever before. The follow-up to his 2017 self-titled effort, I Travel On marks the first time that Eady’s recorded an album with his road band—a lineup whose rhythm section is made up of musicians from an R&B/roots background, and whose lead players hail from the bluegrass world. With Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley joining them in the studio, I Travel On wholly captures the unbridled energy and kinetic camaraderie that the band’s recently displayed in their relentless touring and in sharing stages with the likes of Sturgill Simpson.
Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley decided to join forces in 2015, and their first album, Before The Sun Goes Down, was nominated for a Grammy. Rob has won the Dobro Player of The Year Award from the IBMA an unprecedented FIFTEEN times, and was a founding member of the critically acclaimed bluegrass ‘super group’ Blue Highway. Trey grew up in eastern Tennessee, and when he was eleven years old, he was brought onstage by Marty Stuart to play with Marty and Earl Scruggs—at the Grand Ole Opry. He has played onstage or opened for artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, Steve Wariner, and Peter Frampton.
