Alison Krauss & Union Station 

When: Sat., June 25, 8 p.m. and Sun., June 26, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $39.50-$125

Possessing the most angelic voice this side of Dolly Parton, and instrumental wizardry to match, Alison Krauss has an extreme talent for crossing musical boundaries. So is it really any wonder that she's gone way beyond being a mere bluegrass artist? And while her 2007 collaboration with Led Zeppelin great Robert Plant appeared to be a classic mismatch, the duo's album Raising Sand won an armful of Grammys. After a seven-year hiatus, Krauss has reunited with backing band Union Station for Paper Airplane, the Illinois native's twelfth album. An artful poacher of other songwriters' work, Krauss stays true to form by tapping the oeuvres of Richard Thompson and Jackson Browne for stellar covers of "Dimming of the Day" and "My Opening Farewell," respectively. Expect more of the same, up to and including a reading of the Bad Company nugget "Oh Atlanta," at the Greek Theatre (Gayley Rd. at Hearst Ave., Berkeley) on Saturday, June 25. 8 p.m., $39.50-$125.
