Alison Krauss’ new album Windy City features Alison performing 10 classic songs that she carefully selected with producer Buddy Cannon. Following Raising Sand, her platinum 2007 album with Robert Plant that won six Grammy Awards, and her 2011 album Paper Airplane, which won a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass, Alison began to feel the tug of inspiration. Alison and Buddy have created an album suffused with sadness that somehow rarely sounds that way. “It’s almost like you didn’t know it was sad,” Alison says, “because it doesn’t sound weak…I love that there’s strength underneath there…That person made it right through it. I love that.” Chautauqua 2018 opening night — start your summer with an evening of inspiration.
