Alison Krauss & Union Station Featuring Jerry Douglas

To Perform In Colorado Springs On July 27, 2014

 

Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas will perform live in concert in Colorado Springs, CO at Pikes Peak Center on Sunday, July 27th. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 28th at 10am and will be available at www.ticketswest.com or via phone at 719-520-SHOW.  

 

In 2011, Rounder Records released the eagerly anticipated Alison Krauss and Union Station album, Paper Airplane. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, Bluegrass Albums Chart and #3 on the Top 200 Album Chart.  A truly breathtaking collection of 11 exquisite songs, Paper Airplane is Krauss’ 14th album and the band’s follow-up to 2004’s triple Grammy® winning Lonely Runs Both Ways (Rounder). It is Krauss’ first release since her 2007 internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum collaboration with Robert Plant, Raising Sand, which won six Grammys including “Record Of The Year” and “Album Of The Year.”

 

Alison Krauss will perform along with Union Station band members Dan Tyminski (guitar, mandolin and lead vocals), Barry Bales (bass and harmony vocals), Ron Block (banjo, guitar and harmony vocals), and Jerry Douglas (Dobro and harmony vocals).

 

Part of Alison Krauss’ incontestable talent is how effortlessly she bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. A highly sought-after collaborator, Krauss has worked with some of the biggest names in popular music, including James Taylor, Phish, Dolly Parton, Yo Yo Ma & Bonnie Raitt.   Since signing with Rounder Records at the age of 14 in 1985 Krauss has sold in excess of 12 million albums and garnered 26 Grammy® Awards, the most for any female and the third most of any recording artist in Grammy® history. Her breathtaking live performances should not be missed.
