Word has it that Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, of Led Zeppelin fame, will be in Nashville this coming week working on a new duet record. Two of the studio musicians lined up so far are Dennis Crouch on bass and Marc Ribot on guitar.
No idea what type of material they plan on covering or a tentative release date, but the studio time has been booked. Can’t wait to hear what that will sound like. All I can say is WOW!
Apparently, the inspiration for the project was the wonderful record by her younger brother Viktor Krauss. Alison sings Plant’s “Big Log” on that project with amazing results.
