ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN TAOS:

There is road construction on the main drag heading into the town.  This is definitely going to cause backups and slow traffic.  We recommend you come as early as possible.  Enjoy the shops and restaurants in Taos before the show! 

Apparently there is also construction in Espanola and south of Santa Fe.  If you are coming from the south definitely start your day early!

"These are songs that have gone into our hearts way back in time, but got lost in the twists and curves of the passing years," says Robert Plant. "You hear them and you go 'Man, listen to that song, we got to sing that song!' It's a vacation, really—the perfect place to go that you least expected to find."

In 2007, Plant and Alison Krauss released Raising Sand, one of the most acclaimed albums of the 21st Century. It was an unlikely, mesmerizing pairing of one of rock's greatest frontmen with one of country music's finest and most honored artists, produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett. It entered the Billboard 200 at Number Two and was certified platinum, and it won six Grammy awards, including both Album and Record of the Year.

Now, after fourteen years, the two icons return with Raise the Roof. Nominated for Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Song ("High and Lonesome") and Best Country Duo/Group Performance ("Going Where The Lonely Go") at the 2023 Grammy Awards, these dozen songs span a range of traditions and styles, extending this remarkable collaboration in new and thrilling directions.

Hailing from Broken Arrow, OK, JD McPherson has recorded four studio albums and toured extensively at venues worldwide, including festival sets at Glastonbury, Bonnaroo and Newport Folk Festival, among many others. Rolling Stone has described his music as "timeless, forward-thinking rock & roll." His 2017 LP, Undivided Heart & Soul, was released to widespread critical acclaim with NPR praising, "McPherson's mastery of rock and soul fundamentals is beyond question, but his voice moves in wild ways on these songs, and the band exudes a new kind of risky energy."
