With Alison Krauss

Since signing with Rounder Records at the age of 14 in 1985 Alison Krauss has sold in excess of 12 million albums and garnered 26 Grammy Awards, the most for any female and the third most of any recording artist in Grammy history. Part of Alison Krauss' incontestable talent is how effortlessly she bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. A highly sought-after collaborator, Krauss has worked with some of the biggest names in popular music, including James Taylor, Phish, Dolly Parton, Yo Yo Ma & Bonnie Raitt. Her 2007 internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum collaboration with Robert Plant, Raising Sand, won six Grammys including Record Of The Year and Album Of The Year.

Alison chats to Cerys about the release of her follow up album Paper Airplane which was made with the members of bluegrass virtuosos Union Station who have worked on films such as Cold Mountain and O Brother, Where Art Thou?
