The St. Augustine Amphitheatre presents An Evening with Alison Krauss and David Gray on Thursday, September 28, 2017, at 7:00 p.m.
These two multi-platinum artists come to St. Augustine on their 21-city Fall 2017 tour, which includes concerts at Radio City Music Hall in New York, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, and two performances at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
A talented American bluegrass and country singer/songwriter, Alison Krauss began studying classical violin at age five but soon switched to bluegrass. She earned her first Grammy Award in 1990 for her first solo album, I’ve Got That Old Feeling. She has released 14 albums and sold more than 12 million records to date, and has won 27 Grammy awards — the most ever for a female artist. Her recent release, Windy City, is a collection of ten classic country songs and has been highly acclaimed.
In 2007, Krauss and Robert Plant released the collaborative album entitled Raising Sand, which won six Grammy awards, including Album of the Year. She has also contributed to many motion picture soundtracks, including O Brother, Where Art Thou? in 2000. This soundtrack produced multiple hits, and Krauss was co-vocalist on many, including the song, “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow.” The movie’s soundtrack sold over seven million copies and won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2002.
David Gray is one of the UK’s leading artists, having earned a multitude of accolades and critical acclaim over his 25-year career. Known for his energetic live shows, Gray has released ten albums that have gone multi-platinum, the most recent one entitled Mutineers. The Guardian described his work in that album as “a rare comfort in hearing an artist in pursuit of joy.”
