Plant & Krauss: Raising the Bar w/ Special Guest Matt Saxton (EP49)

In this episode, Team Derringer explores a rare juxtaposition: the improbable convergence of two highly disparate styles of music. In 2004, two luminaries in their respective genres came together to make magic. One is a dynamic frontman for one of the most well-known rock bands of all time, while the other is a highly sought-after collaborator, solo artist, and leader of an extremely popular bluegrass band.

In 2007, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant released their Grammy-winning album, Raising Sand. The critically acclaimed pairing produced studio gold which later turned into platinum. Fourteen years later, the duo released their second album, Raise the Roof. Could they replicate the magic? Listen in to find out!

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Matt Saxton from East Sussex, United Kingdom, joins Team Derringer as special guest-host to explore the Plant and Krauss’ fantastic interpretation of blues, country, soul, gospel, and old-timey songs. To top off the winning formula, the pair recruited Grammy award winning T. Bone Burnett, a highly successful record producer, guitarist, and songwriter.  Burnett is known for musical endeavors in films such as O Brother Where Art Thou?, Cold Mountain, Walk the Line, and Crazy Heart.

As a special treat, Matt Saxton shares some of his own music with the Derringer Discoveries listeners.
