Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2008 at 11:17 PM

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival announced the full roster today for this year's wingding at the Fairgrounds, and some major star power is juicing up the bill. Besides the previously announced return of the Neville Brothers, plus Tim McGraw and Frankie Beverly & Maze, this year we'll also see a few A-list collaborations. Notably, Fats Domino fan Robert Plant will be performing with bluegrass queen Alison Krauss on the heels of their 2007 album together, Raising Sand; Allen Toussaint and Elvis Costello will also be reprising the live partnership that wowed crowds at the 2006 Fest.Other notables include Dr. John, the urban soul siren Keyshia Cole, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow and Jack White's garage-rock outfit the Raconteurs.
