By March 24th, 2023Locus 2023 eng

The Locus Festival announces the final concert of his 19th edition “Music of many colours”, bringing a chapter of the music history to the Bari seafront (via Paolo Pinto roundabout): on 1st September Robert Plant will present his musical project Saving Grace featuring Suzi Diana.

Tickets on sale starting Monday 27 March at 12 pm (cet) on Ticketone

The rock icon, member of Led Zeppelin, brings to the Locus Festival Saving Grace, the project that sees him on stage together with Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussions), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars), Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars, cuatro). The group arrives in Italy after their debut in 2019 with a series of surprise concerts in small venues in England, Wales and Ireland and, subsequently, with three dates in the United Kingdom in support of the Fairport Convention.

The intimate performances of Saving Grace see the band drawing from a repertoire of “music inspired by the dreamscape of Welsh marches”, songs that span Plant’s diverse tastes and influences, particularly his lifelong passion for British and American folk, spirituals and traditional blues.

The name of Robert Plant completes the line up of the Locus Festival, which once again this year confirms itself as one of the symbols par excellence of summer in Puglia and among the cornerstones of the Italian musical season, with a versatile and borderless program that embraces sounds from Italy and the world.
