It was hard to know what to expect from the live performance of the “Raising Sand Revue” As named by Mr. Plant but one thing was for sure is that two of the strongest and most unique voices would be on display in full force. One a bluegrass belle, with a chilling and, at times, ethereal voice and the other a bona fide rock god who, if you closed your eyes and just heard his voice, you wouldn’t think him to be 60 years old. When their album came out last fall it was much lauded and praised and this seemingly odd pairing was proven to actually work. Now on tour the pair are solidifying the pairing and allowing it to further grow and become something more than even the two of them imagined.
