Alison Krauss & Union Station, Dawes

Not that Alison Krauss needed any help, but her 2007 collaboration with Robert Plant on the platinum-selling, multi-Grammy-winning Raising Sand album introduced the singer and fiddler to a whole new audience of classic-rock fans. That helps explain how this season-closing show at Red Butte Garden sold out so quickly. Another explanation comes via Paper Airplane, Krauss & Union Station’s first album of new material since 2004’s Lonely Runs Both Ways. Her band features some of the best roots-music instrumentalists in the business, including mandolin player Dan Tyminski (George Clooney’s voice in O Brother Where Art Thou?) and dobro man Jerry Douglas. Together, Krauss and her band are capable of producing stirring modern folk and takes on old favorites that sound as authentic as their Dust Bowl-era originals. For this show, Krauss and Co. are joined by rising Los Angeles roots-rockers Dawes, whose new album, Nothing is Wrong, evokes the Golden Age of Cali-rock, whether due to its analog-tape recording sessions or the stellar harmonies of singer/guitarist Taylor Goldsmith and his brother/drummer Griffin. The show might be sold out, but it’s also a rare gig worth dealing with a scalper if you can find one outside Red Butte. Red Butte Garden, 300 Wakara Way, 7 p.m., sold out
