AKUS

Posted on September 11, 2005, under general.

As both Noirin and Colin have blogged; last Monday we went to see Allison Krauss and Union Station, at the Olympia. They played a straight set, two and a half hours without stopping, and no support act, and it was easily one of the best gigs I have ever been to. Having seen Bella Fleck earlier this year, we are really notching up the bluegrass superstars.

Allison Krauss’ voice was superb, as ever. Her singing has a genuine haunting quality and for some of the numbers like “Ghost in this house” it was almost hard to believe that anyone is capable of producing such perfect sound. Highly recommended! If you ever have the chance, go see them while they are still playing.
