    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?

    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.

    I wish she brings this tour to Europe. Am on a serious Krauss kick right now actually.

    Incredible show

    Very moving and stripped down
    The harmonies were so moving
    Glad I didn't miss this

    Thank you all for your warm reviews

    Giving this thread a bump hoping more fans will weigh in on this national treasure.
    Listening to her sing makes me proud to be an American - not a popular sentiment, I know, during these troubling times.
    But we do have Alison and her amazing voice and astonishing fiddle playing. Her voice is like audio buttermilk. Melts my heart.
    Can a convincing case be made for putting Alison on a Mount Rushmore of American musical giants, representing bluegrass/Americana?
    27 Grammy Awards - second only to Quincy Jones.
