After releasing their second collaborative album last year, the gorgeous Raise the Roof, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant have been touring together again this summer. On Sept. 1 they took the stage at Red Rocks in Morrison, Colo. for one of the concert highlights of the summer.
Our friend Lisa Siciliano (Dog Daze Photo) was on hand to capture them.
The setlist included songs from Raise the Roof as well as their previous album together, 2007’s Raising Sand.
And to the thrill of many fans, they also dug up a few classics from Plant’s days with Led Zeppelin, including “Rock and Roll,” “Battle of Evermore,” and “When the Levee Breaks.”
The band featured some A-list players including J.D. McPherson on lead guitar (he also opened the show); Stuart Duncan on fiddle, mandolin, and other instruments; drummer Jay Bellerose; multi-instrumentalist Vicktor Krauss; and upright bassist Dennis Crouch.
“Alison is like a force of nature,” McPherson told the Current in a recent interview. “First of all, she’s just on the ball with everything. I mean, she’s kind of running the show as far as she’s always got her eye on every little detail. And then she opens her mouth, and this supernatural sound comes out.”
