Alison Krauss' blend of traditional bluegrass and bright folk has brought surprising commercial success--first for her 1995 collection Now That I've Found You, and again five years later with her contributions to the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. Krauss and her band, Union Station, just keep doing what they always have. If it's a tad more polished these days, the heart's still in the same place, drifting down a canopy country road, her voice an angelic creature soaring and swooping with the emotional ebb and flow over a burbling brook of fiddle, dobro and bittersweet acoustic guitar twang.
Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas play Booth Amphitheatre in Cary on Sunday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $32.50 lawn, $48.50 reserved.
