Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas are set to criss-cross North America this summer on a nationwide tour eventually taking them to over 50 cities including Mountain Park in Holyoke on Sunday, July 24th at 7PM. It has been several years since Alison Krauss along with Union Station band members Dan Tyminski (guitar, mandolin and lead vocals), Barry Bales (bass and harmony vocals), Ron Block (banjo, guitar and harmony vocals), and Jerry Douglas (Dobro and harmony vocals) toured together. Their last go around saw raves from critics who witnessed “Krauss and Union Station induce awe with their musical virtuosity...pangs of heartache with their ballads of disillusionment and, most significantly, the giddiness that results from hearing a familiar tune played well." (Chicago Sun Times)
On April 12th, 2011 Rounder Records will release the eagerly anticipated Alison Krauss & Union Station album, Paper Airplane. A truly breathtaking collection of 11 exquisite songs, Paper Airplane is Krauss’ 14th album and the band’s follow-up to 2004’s triple Grammy® winning Lonely Runs Both Ways.
