Alison Krauss & Union Station at Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre tonight (7/28/2012)

ALISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION Alison Krauss has been making gorgeous American music since her debut recording for Rounder, Too Late to Cry, back in 1987. Her sweet voice and fiddle playing are rooted in a bluegrass foundation, but she can turn a phrase with ease in country, folk and even pop. Her recording with rock god Robert Plant could have gone horribly wrong and landed among the rock era’s myriad disparate duo albums that fizzled, but Krauss simply folded her natural voice with Plant’s and further proved her versatility on that fine record, while dabbling in rockabilly and rock. She’s just as warm when she performs with legendary Southern gospel act the Cox Family. Krauss & Union Station’s most recent recording, Paper Airplane, displays, once again, how beautiful music can be without all the flashiness. With Jerry Douglas. $35-$70. 8 p.m. Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre.
