Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 30, to see bluegrass-country songstress Alison Krauss perform this summer in Seattle.

Krauss & Union Station featuring Dobro performer and singer Jerry Douglas will appear in concert at 7 p.m. July 8 at Marymoor Park.

Their appearance will be on the heels of their album, “Paper Airplane,” released this month. The collection of 11 songs is Krauss’ 14th album and the band’s follow-up to the triple-Grammy-winning “Lonely Runs Both Ways” released in 2004.

Krauss launched her recording career at age of 14 in 1985, when she signed with Rounder Records. Since then, she has sold more than 12 million albums and won 26 Grammy Awards, the most for any woman and the third most for any recording artist in Grammy history, according to a news release.

Krauss bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop and is known as a highly sought-after collaborator. She’s worked with James Taylor, Phish, Dolly Parton, Yo Yo Ma & Bonnie Raitt.
In 2007, she collaborated with Robert Plant on “Raising Sand,” which won six Grammys including “Record Of The Year” and “Album Of The Year.”
