Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas
04/29/2012
MerleFest Day 4, Wilkesboro, NC

This was a great choice as a closer for MerleFest. I’ve always loved her voice but all her songs start to sound the same after a while.  I really like how they arrange the set list and intersperse some of Dan Tyminski’s songs (which I tend to like better anyway) because it provides some much needed variety.

I wandered up front to snap some photos and while I was up there someone on the side of the stage caught her attention and I was able so snap this photo at the perfect time.

Other Day 4 acts that I saw:

  • Sarah & Christian Dugas – Same comments as before.
  • Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives – Not as bad as I expected. They are a very polished “Nashville band” right down to the matching jumpsuits but I found them enjoyable to listen to. I probably wouldn’t go out to see them on their own but I was glad I got see them perform. As they say, “a great festival band.”
  • Dougie MacLean – I’ve heard of him for years as other artists always cited him as an influence but I never knew much about him. Even though it was only a short set on the Cabin Stage it was great to see him perform.
  • Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas  – You’re reading it.
