BluesFest Presents: Counting Crows
Counting Crows are to headline The O2 as part of this autumn’s BluesFest. Returning to London for the first time since two sold-out shows in 2014, the multi-million selling folk-rockers are confirmed to close the festival on Sunday 28 October for a much-anticipated show that will also feature a full set from award-winning US vocalist Alison Krauss.
Krauss has enjoyed an illustrious 30-year career that has seen her win 27 Grammy Awards, sell over 12 million albums and collaborate with the likes of Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Kenny Rogers, Emmylou Harris and James Taylor. Support for Counting Crows and Alison Krauss comes from revered Americana singer-songwriter Jake Smith AKA The White Buffalo.
