Photos: Robert Plant Reveals New Band Saving Grace


Last week, Robert Plant debuted a new group called Saving Grace at an intimate show in Shropshire, England and announced a second appearance.

The band features singer Suzy Dian, mandolinist-guitarist Tony Kelsey, banjoist-guitarist Matt Worley, and percussionist Oli Jefferson. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the band makes “music inspired by the dreamscape of the Welsh Marches” with a sonic range “from a whisper to a scream.”

The surprise gig for an unaware crowd happened on January. 25th at the SpArC Theatre in Bishop’s Castle close to the border between England and Wales. A post on the theatre’s Facebook page hailed the event as “something very special.” “Saving Grace came onstage with Robert declaring that this was the band’s first gig and he was very happy to be back in ‘Bouncy Castle.’

The SpArc Theatre also shared pictures from the evening.

The post describes Saving Grace’s music as sublime, laid-back and bluesy with eastern and folk influences. Robert was in fine voice, Suzi’s vocals blended perfectly, as well as standing out and owning it in her own right. With warm harmonies from Tony and Matt … we couldn’t believe our luck!”
