The Artist’s Den premiered in February 2009 and has, so far, broadcast four seasons. The concept of the show is to have an artist perform a small, intimate concert in a non-traditional space such as at cathedrals or museums. For example, Elvis Costello played at the main branch of the New York Public Library and Adele at the Santa Monica Bay Women’s Club.

In the case of Robert Plant and the Band of Joy, they were filmed at a more traditional venue, the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Included in the performance are versions of six Led Zeppelin songs (Black Dog, Houses of the Holy, Tangerine, Ramble On, Gallows Pole, Rock and Roll), four songs from the album Band of Joy, Page and Plant’s Movin’ Up and a few songs from Plant’s solo work.

Plant created Band of Joy with guitarist Buddy Miller and singer Patty Griffin after his success with Alison Krauss on Raising Sand, his 2007 release that led to five Grammy wins. Plant’s Band of Joy album (the title is a reference to the group he formed with John Bonham prior to Led Zeppelin) peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in October 2010. It has sold 232,000 copies, according to Soundscan figures.

Black Dog
Angel Dance

Cindy, I’ll Marry You Someday
Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down
Somewhere Trouble Don’t Go
