Saving Grace, the project featuring Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars), Robert Plant (vocals) and Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars, cuatro), made its debut in early 2019 with a series of surprise concerts at small venues in England, Wales and Ireland and, subsequently, a trio of dates in the UK in support of the Fairport Convention.

The intimate performances saw the band draw from a repertoire of “music inspired by the dreamscape of Welsh marches,” songs that span Plant’s diverse tastes and influences, particularly his undying passion for British and American folk, spirituals, and traditional blues, including a number of beloved standards by Doc Watson, Donovan, Moby Grape, and Low, among others.

These are the scheduled Italian dates:

Aug. 26th – Arena Alpe Adria Lignano Sabbiadoro
Aug. 28th – Sferisterio Macerata
Aug. 30th – Teatro Antico Taormina
Sept. 1st – Locus Festival Bari
September 3rd – Teatro Romano Ostia Antica
September 5th – Teatro Arcimboldi Milan
September 6th – Piazza Dei Signori Vicenza In Festival

Benedetta Baldin

Hi! My name is Benedetta, I’m 29 and I live in Northern Italy. My passion has always been music: I started taking guitar lessons when I was 6. Now I work as a sales representative, but in my free time I interview talented people, I spread the word about my favorite band (MoonSun), and I go to concerts or travel around Europe. I am a huge collector of anything Tolkien-related, autographs, merchandise, and CDs. I am quite an original person and don’t mind being the voice outside of the choir (even though I play in the church’s choir!).
