|Andrew Weigel||Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival 2008|
The weather brightened during their set, which followed The Dan Tyminski Band. On the right playing resophonic guitar is Rob Ickes, 9-time winner of the IBMA's "dobro Player of the Year Award". The guitar player is Tim Stafford, who does a killer Ralph Stanley impersonation.
Their set was very well received. There was brief chatter about the pairing Alison Krauss and Robert Plant (of course). This lead Tim Stafford to do the hardcore bluegrass version of "Black Dog" (has to be heard to be believed), which segued into "Blackbird". Not available on any CD....
In the last picture, they're not posing for me. It was for the pretty picture taker next to me, and I just horned in.
