Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss, two multiple Grammy winners, are bringing their respective bands to Simsbury Performing Arts Center this summer, as part of a big 35-city co-headlining tour.

The two groups, Willie Nelson & Family and Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, will be playing shows together for the first time ever. They’re scheduled to arrive at the Simsbury venue on Sunday, June 15, according to Krauss’ events page. (The Connecticut date doesn’t appear on Nelson’s website so far, but that could change.)
