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
