Late Night FDL: Rich Woman

Robert Plant & Alison Krauss – Rich Woman

Robert and Alison are teaming up once more…

Robert Plant seems determined not to get back with Led Zeppelin ever again, and but he’s left the door open on a reunion with his other massively successful collaborator, Alison Krauss.

Although he nixed a planned follow-up to the duo’s follow-up to the six time GRAMMY wining 2007 album, Raising Sand, he and Krauss will perform together at a tribute to folk blues icon Lead Belly (aka Huddie Ledbetter).

According to the Washington Post, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will top a star-studded lineup for “Lead Belly at 125: A Tribute to an American Songster” on April 25 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The tribute, being produced by the Kennedy Center and the GRAMMY Museum, also will feature headliners Buddy Miller (who played in Plant and Krauss’s backing band on the Raising Sand tour), Lucinda Williams, Dan Zanes, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Billy Hector, Valerie June, Shannon McNally and Josh White Jr. {…}

Plant has a number of Krauss-less gigs coming up in the coming months, including dates at the Bottlerock Festival in Napa Valley, Mountain Jam in New York and Bonnaroo.

What’s on your mind tonite…?
