ROBERT PLANT To Unveil New Band At 30th Anniversary Of WOMAD Festival

According to The Guardian, Robert Plant and his new band the SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS will make their live debut as headliners of the 30th-anniversary edition of the Womad festival. The group's lineup will include the former LED ZEPPELIN singer alongside members of his former backing band STRANGE SENSATION and regular collaborator Justin Adams.

SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS say they draw inspiration "from the roots music of Mississippi, Appalachia, Gambia, Bristol and the foothills of Wolverhampton."

The inaugural installment of Womad — an acronymn for World of Music, Arts and Dance — was conceived by GENESIS singer Peter Gabriel and took place in 1982 at the Royal Bath & West showground in Shepton Mallet, Somerset.
