Alison Krauss & Union Station Featuring Jerry Douglas
With a dynamic career spanning decades, bluegrass virtuoso Alison Krauss has established herself as an absolute authority of her craft. The singer-songwriter has taken home an astounding 27 Grammy Awards®, the most of any female artist in history. Joined by Union Station, featuring Jerry Douglas, this highly anticipated return to the VPAC stage will have you tapping your toes and dancing in your seat all evening!
Alison Krauss effortlessly bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. A prodigy in her own right, Krauss signed with Rounder Records at the age of 14. She has recorded 17 albums over the span of her career and sold more than 12 million.
Paper Airplane is the latest masterpiece in Krauss’ illustrious career. Recorded in partnership with her remarkably skillful and renowned band, Union Station, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country, Bluegrass and Folk Album Charts upon its release.
Union Station – Jerry Douglas (dobro, lap steel, vocals), Dan Tyminski (guitar, mandolin, lead vocal), Ron Block (banjo, guitar) and Barry Bales (bass, vocals), with Krauss on lead vocal and fiddle – are five distinct personalities who come together to form something truly unique as a band. Each bandmate has his own bustling career, but when these singular musicians come together, they’re an airtight unit devoted to the process of making music together. Indeed, their connection is so close and deep that they’ve come to think of each other as family.
