Led Zeppelin's lead singer and lyricist will be taking to the stage at the Hebridean Celtic Festival’s 25th anniversary celebration.

Robert Plant and his latest musical collaboration will appear on the HebCelt stage on Thursday 16 July.

Saving Grace features Robert and fellow vocalist, Suzi Dian, Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars) and Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars, and cuatro).

Their sound has been described as bluesy and folk-inspired, which packs a punch ranging ‘from a whisper to a scream’.

Robert said of performing at HebCelt: “I have a deep and charged connection with those faraway islands and look forward to returning to the beautiful machair and to bring a different slant to my longstanding game."

Saving Grace will join Texas, Seasick Steve, Tide Lines and Julie Fowlis as some of the star names on the bill for the milestone festival.

HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan said: “Our 25th anniversary festival is a very special occasion and the programme reflects that.

“Robert Plant is a legendary name in the music scene and it is so exciting that he and the other highly accomplished musicians in Saving Grace will be joining us for such a significant event.”

The 25th anniversary HebCelt will be held from 15-18 July in Lewis and Harris.

Also announced for the anniversary line up are Colin Macleod, Mischa Macpherson, Sean Harrison, Rusty Shackle, INYAL, Hecla, Ryan Young & Jenn Butterworth, Scott C Park, Nicky Murray and James Nicol.
