Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas is coming to Packard
August 19, 2011 - Andy Gray
In case anyone couldn’t figure it out from my column yesterday, now it’s official.
Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas will perform Oct. 7 at Packard Music Hall.
Douglas is a 1974 LaBrae High School graduate, and all net proceeds from the concert will benefit three organizations: The Camelot Center, Warren Family Mission and the Jimmy Franks & Jim Hillman Scholarship Fund of LaBrae High School.
Tickets will go at 10 a.m. Aug. 26 at the Packard box office and by calling 330-841-2931. Tickets are $59.50, $49.50 and $39.50. There also will be 30 “gold circle” seats for $100 each, which includes seating in the first two rows and a post-concert meet-and-greet with Alison Krauss & Union Station.
The band’s latest CD, “Paper Airplane,” was released in April. It’s Krauss’ 14th album, and the band’s first since 2004’s “Lonely Runs Both Ways.” Krauss has won 26 Grammy Awards in her career, more than any other female artist.
Douglas is the acknowledged master of the dobro and is one of the musicians credited with taking bluegrass in new and innovative directions in the late ‘70s and ‘80s. Douglas has won 13 Grammy Awards in his career and has performed with many of the biggest names in country and rock music.
