I LOVE ALISON, WHERE WAS WILLY NELSON?
I went to see Alison at Foxwoods on 9/7 and her show was simply amazing. A little too much gospel for me but I stilled loved it. She played some of her favorites, hit all the notes and blew me away. No one was asking where was Willy Nelson. The last time I saw Alison was at the Ryan Center, she blew me away there too. I walked away from URI saying that was a lesson in Bluegrass. Thank-you Alison, come back again soon. -jm

The show at the Wagner Noel was sublime. From the sparse opening of River in the Rain through some of her best pieces, Alison and her supporting band were in extremely fine form. There was little banter with the audience; the sound mix on her violin was off, such that it was inaudible about half the time; the show was barely 90 minutes, when two hours would have been greatly appreciated. But all of that is quibbling. Ms. Krauss' voice is, really, the reason everyone was there, and it did not disappoint in the slightest. Truly the voice of an angel, and yes, as others have said, it brought me to tears. And closer to God.

ONE OF MY TOP 5 CONCERTS OF ALL TIME
From the very first note, it was apparent why Alison Krauss has been awarded the most Grammy awards of any singer. Her vocal clarity and control is simply beyond measure. Although her performance style is underplayed and not showy, she had the audience hanging on with attention for the full 90 minutes. Alison's on-stage persona is very warm and humorous, but she did not waste a lot of time with small talk, moving through a vast repertoire of new and old material. Musicianship was outstanding by all of the Cox family and 3 of her Union Station veterans. The venue was The Sony Centre in Toronto Ontario and our seats were 2 or 3 rows from the very back of the balcony. We found the concert mix to be incredibly full frequency and clear. I am not easily pleased as I have had a career in professional audio, and I must say it was one of the most enjoyable concert experiences of my life. Many thanks the the 2018 Toronto Jazz Festival for including her in this wonderful annual event.

To the reviewer who was underwhelmed, yes I think you were the only one and I felt like "the lucky one". A wonderful live performance of professional singers and musicians. Maybe you were expecting studio versions where there are retakes and editing to create perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed Allsion's performance and was moved to tears with the voice, music, and the Berkshire aura. The warm up band was wonderful too. I had great seats and was not on the lawn. Looking forward to Emmy lou Harris

ANGELIC VOICE FILLS BENEDUM
An Angel did fly close to Pittsburgh ground last night...stopping at the Benedum for a wonderful 90 plus minute show of excellent harmonies and musicianship. Alison was joined by Ron Block and Bruce Bales from Union Station, as well as members of the Cox family and gave us a remarkable and memorable night. Her voice truly is angelic, and she graced us with a wonderful performance.
