ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ROB ICKES, ANDY LEFTWICH, and DAVE POMEROY aka “THREE RING CIRCLE”

Acclaimed instrumentalists Rob Ickes, Andy Leftwich, and Dave Pomeroy have joined together to pursue a common goal - creating innovative and memorable music with the unique combination of dobro, mandolin, and upright bass. They are individually known as world class players who are expanding the vocabulary and boundaries of their chosen instruments, and the trio format allows them unprecedented creative freedom and stylistic versatility. They have just completed their debut album ”Three Ring Circle”, which includes originals written by all three members and creative reworkings of classic tunes.

Originally from the San Fransisco area, Rob Ickes has become known as one of the finest dobro players on the planet since moving to Nashville in 1992. He is the leader of the Grammy nominated bluegrass band Blue Highway, and has been named the IBMA's "Dobro Player Of The Year" seven times. He has recorded 4 groundbreaking solo albums for Rounder Records. His session work includes work with Patty Loveless, Earl Scruggs, Alison Krauss, and the Grammy winning "Great Dobro Sessions". He and Dave are featured artists on the critically acclaimed CD " Nashville Acoustic Sessions" with Raul Malo and Pat Flynn.

Andy Leftwich is only 24 years old, but he is already blazing a trail as one of the most accomplished mandolin and fiddle players to appear on the scene in a long time. Andy's blazing mandolin break on "Shady Grove" from Ricky and Kentucky Thunder's Grammy winning "History of the Future” served notice that not only were Andy's fiddle skills extraordinary, but that his mandolin playing was a force to be reckoned with. His debut CD "Ride" on Skaggs Family Records charted high in the bluegrass charts and brought more attention to his prodigious composing and production skills. Andy's evocative, challenging tunes and complex, driving mandolin style are an essential part of the trio's sound.

The distinctive sound of Dave Pomeroy’s electric upright bass has been heard on over 400 albums and six Grammy winning CDs with artists such as Emmylou Harris, The Chieftains, Elton John, Earl Scruggs and Alison Krauss. He has performed live with dozens of major artists including Duane Eddy, John Fogerty, Steve Winwood, and Mose Allison. He has been voted "Studio Musician of The Year" and "Bassist of The Year" at the Nashville Music Awards. He has released 7 albums on Earwave Records, including his solo CDs "Basses Loaded" and "Tomorrow Never Knows." Dave's bass is the backbone of the trio and his versatile rhythmic and melodic playing helps push the music in new directions.

“Three Ring Circle” will be playing shows throughout the year in support of the release of their debut CD on Earwave Records in March 2006. Stay Tuned...
