Legendary Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant remains a touring force these days. There may be no Zep reunions on the horizon (he’s ready to move past that), Plant and his band the Sensational Space Shifters seem to be on the road much of the year, every year.

And in May, Plant will head back to the U.S. for some tour dates, with a twist: He and a fresh ensemble of musicians will be presenting the Saving Grace live show, which as of yet has not debuted on American soil.

Via a news release:

A new cooperative comprised of Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars), Robert Plant (vocals), and Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars, cuatro), Saving Grace made its debut in early 2019 with a series of surprise gigs in small venues across England, Wales, and Ireland and later, a trio of UK dates supporting Fairport Convention. The intimate performances saw the band drawing from a repertoire of “music inspired by the dreamscape of the Welsh Marches,” songs that span Plant’s diverse tastes and influences, notably his lifelong passion for British and American folk, spirituals, and traditional blues, including a number of beloved standards and longtime favorites by Doc Watson, Donovan, Moby Grape, and Low, among others.

Here’s an idea what that’s all about:

The dates:

12 – Minneapolis, MN – Pantages Theatre*
13 – Milwaukee, WI – Turner Hall Ballroom*
15 – Chicago, IL – Old Town School of Folk Music**
17 – Charleston, WV – Mountain Stage at The Clay Center*
19 – Port Chester, NY – The Capitol Theatre*
