Robert Plant & Alison Krauss

When: Fri., June 27, 8 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 5, 7:30 p.m. 2008

Seriously, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss? What might have looked like a classic mismatch on paper turned out to be one of 2007's most pleasant musical surprises in the duo's album Raising Sand. Produced by roots music cornerstone T-Bone Burnett, (who's also along for the ride on this tour), Sand found Plant and Krauss on common ground on a number of traditional folk numbers and quirky covers of Little Milton and the Everly Brothers. Turns out this grizzled rocker and bluegrass diva had far more in common than anyone thought. At the Greek Theatre (Gayley Rd. at Hearst Ave., Berkeley) on Friday, June 27.8 p.m., $39.50-$89.50.
