Alison Krauss & Union Station will be playing a seven date tour of the UK and Ireland this November, with one night in Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium.
American bluegrass-country singer Alison Krauss entered the music business at a young age, signing with her first record company at the age of just 14, and releasing her first album aged 16.
At the age of 18 she was invited to join Union Station, the band with which she still performs, and released her first album with Union Station “Two Highways” in 1989.
Although this album didn’t chart, every album they have released since has done so, and Alison Krauss and Union Station have become one of the best known names in country & roots music around the world.
Their most recent album, “Paper Airplane” was released in April 2011 and reached number 1 in the US country charts, peaking at number 11 in the UK album charts – an impressive feat for a country band.
Their tour in the autumn of 2011 will be the band’s first international tour in six years. These chances don’t come around too often, so make sure you don’t miss Alison Krauss and Union Station live in Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium.
