Alison Krauss and Union Station
Alison Krauss & Union Station is scheduled to perform at the tenth annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The four-day camping and music festival will be held on June 9-12 on a beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles south of Nashville.

Alison Krauss & Union Station features the talents of Krauss (fiddle and lead vocals), 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).

Their work on films such as Cold Mountain and O Brother, Where Art Thou? has contributed immeasurably to a renaissance of American roots music. A highly sought-after collaborator, Krauss has worked with some of the biggest names in popular music, including James Taylor, Phish, Dolly Parton, Yo Yo Ma and Bonnie Raitt.

Since signing with Rounder Records at the age of 14 in 1985, Krauss has sold in excess of 12 million albums and garnered 26 Grammy Awards, the most for any female and the third most of any recording artist in Grammy history. The group’s first new album in seven years, Paper Airplane, was released April 12.
