    The tour is coming to New Orleans Friday and I am debating going

    Have seen her with Plant and on her own

    Any details from this year? Union Station backing?

    Thanks

    I saw her in Charlottesville. Fantastic show, well worth seeing. She is not backed by Union Station, though a couple players from that band are in her touring band this time. It's a nice mix of bluegrass and more rocking material, with drums (the drummer from the Krauss/Plant album, actually) and an excellent pianist who plays in a kind of boogie woogie or stride style.

    Oh, and the Cox Family performs with her. In Charlottesville, they did a mini-set of material from the O, Brother soundtrack.

    Definitely worthwhile.

    Here’s my post from another thread:

    Alison's show in Pittsburgh last Friday (June 8) was fantastic. She had a fantastic band, including two members of Union Station (Ron Block and Barry Bales), Sydney and Suzanne Cox, Jay Bellerose, Matt Rollings and James Mitchell. I loved that she started her show with a ballad, "Rive In The Rain", my favorite song from "Windy City", and she did a nice mix of her solo pop-country songs with lots of old-timey bluegrass numbers featuring impeccable harmonies.
