Lead singer Robert Plant brings his 40+ years of singing experience and his new-found love for American music, plus his old repertoire, singer/guitarist Patty Griffin brings her gospel/soul/country-style vocals plus some excellent acoustic guitar rhythm, Buddy Miller brings his arsenal of string instruments, including, acoustic guitars, Wandre electric and a Teo 12-string. He's an excellent picker that lends itself to the Americana roots style of playing, but I feel that he's got a mean streak of rock inside him, which shines while he's playing. Multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott is a real delight. He plays acoustic, electric, mandola, pedal steel and banjo, plus he's got a hell of a great voice. So full of soul. It's not what you would expect upon first seeing him. Bassist Byron House was brought in by Buddy Miller and does not disappoint. He plays both upright bass and electric four-string both with ease and adds some very tasty bass lines. Percussionist Marco Giovino fills in the blanks and adds so much, but doesn't make an attempt to take center stage.
The set list for Live From the Artists Den: Robert Plant & the Band of Joy is pretty standard for the tour, offering up some new songs, some old songs and everything in between.

I was a bit slow to get on board as I found myself, after the initial honeymoon phase, not reaching for the Raising Sand CD very often. Then I watched the BBC's Live at Electric Proms with Robert Plant and Band of Joy. Wow! Immediately this concert became a long-term favorite right up with the likes of such stellar concert DVDs at "Concert for George", "The Last Waltz", and my boot of Brian Wilson (& his band The Wondermints) at Glastonbury Festival. I had to get the CD, which while not as quite as powerful as seeing the band live is wonderful and remains one I am drawn to. This is a case where a live concert is even better than the CD which the tour supports.
The BBC show isn't, AFAIK, available as a DVD. You can find it to burn to DVD if you know the usual places to look for this kind of stuff. That really doesn't matter very much, however, because if I had to pick one: this one is the winner by a bit more than a nose, IMHO. While they are both similar they have some important differences.Read more ›
I first saw (and heard) Plant performing with Alison Krauss at the Americana Music Awards in Nashville, on the eve of their embarking on the "Raising Sand" CD and tour. It was Krauss, and the incomparable guitarist/singer/producer Buddy Miller - the music director for that evening- that brought me to see Plant. I wasn't sure what to expect (and neither was the audience at the Awards Show) but we were all drawn in.
After the Raising Sand project, Plant decided he like the "Americana" mode and used Miller to put together the Band of Joy. Nashville music stalwarts Byron House (bass) and Darrell Scott (multi-instrumentalist, but also a songwriter with a string of CDs to his credit) were brought in. Singer-songwriter Patty Griffin joined the group and subsequently married Plant in the last month. And there there was Miller holding it all together like glue.
This "concert" was staged in Nashville specifically for the Live at The Artists Den television series and - as others have pointed out - it differs some from the national tour by the group. It runs 77 minutes (to fit TV schedules) so those who saw the tour will find songs missing.
As for performance, I thought the band was in fine form and everyone got their own spotlight (not just the rock icon whose name is three times the size of the band's on the DVD cover. They work as a team with each member supporting the other.
There are a few interview segments included and then a longer (nearly 30-minute) interview with Plant as a bonus.Read more ›
