Robert Plant and Alison Krauss Together Again

The collaboration between the Led Zep frontman and the bluegrass queen has a second act.

We may have assumed that it was a one-off project when Led Zep man Robert Plant got together with bluegrass queen Alison Krauss and recorded a stunning album over a decade ago. But no, they did it again and it’s equally stunning. See for yourself. JD McPherson also plays.

According to the press release, “Backed by an ace band of guitarist JD McPherson, who is also opening all of the US performances, plus drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, multi-talented string player Stuart Duncan, and Viktor Krauss on keys and guitar, setlists have included favorites from both Raising Sand and Raise The Roof, as well as reimagined arrangements of Led Zeppelin cuts like ‘The Battle of Evermore,’ ‘Rock & Roll’ and ‘When The Levee Breaks.’ Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are currently nominated for Duo/Group of The Year at the 2022 Americana Honors & Awards, in addition to Album of The Year for Raise The Roof, which was produced by T Bone Burnett and spent over 20 weeks at #1 on the Americana chart.”

The event takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 18 at the Greek Theatre.
