The co-operative project features Robert Plant and Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey - (mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars) and Matt Worley (banjo, cuatro, acoustic and baritone guitars). 

These five musicians work in harmony from start to finish, reworking a selection of diverse cover versions that have been collected from various places creating a musical journey in its truest form.

"It's sort of a feeling of power onstage. It's really the ability to make people smile, or just to turn them one way or another for that duration of time, and for it to have some effect later on. 

"I don't really think it's power... it's the goodness. (Robert Plant)


The show also stars special guest singer songwriter Scott Matthews. 

Admired by Robert Plant, Scott has been performing since 2006 and shot to success when he earned himself the Ivor Novello award with his first single, Elusive.

English singer songwriter Robert Plant OBE is best known for his time as lyricist and lead singer of rock giants Led Zeppelin in the late 60s to 70s. 

Having developed himself as a charismatic rock-and-roll frontman, he has since gone on to work with many elite artists and has enjoyed a legendary singing career spanning over 50 years. 

"It's OK to quote from your past. But I'm more interested in quoting from my present and pointing towards the future." (Robert Plant)

Tickets for Saving Grace at The De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, are priced from £32.50 and can be purchased on presale from Thursday 10 June, with General on Sale Friday 11 June, via coastalevents.co.uk and dlwp.com.
