Violinist Lindsey Stirling Covers Led Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir’

Last week, on July 21st, famous violinist Lindsey Stirling released her cover of the legendary rock anthem, ‘Kashmir’, originally by Led Zeppelin. Originally released in 1975 on Led Zeppelin’s 6th album, ‘Physical Graffiti’, the song quickly gained notoriety for being some of the group’s most progressive work yet, when progressive rock was still in its relative infancy. Now, nearly half a century after the song’s release, Stirling is releasing her own take on the classic, to honour the biggest band of the 1970s.

Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters

Robert Plant’s had one hell of a career. Singing in the Sixties, he joined Led Zeppelin in 1969 and went on to forge a legendary series of albums with the band. While they were best-known for their heavy rock, drawing from timeless blues classics, they also turned out many a calming folk tune, often written in a cottage named Bron-Yr-Aur nestled in the heart of Wales. And the end of Led Zeppelin didn’t mean the end of Plant; in the years since, he’s not only endured but matured, broadening his body of work with elements from across the globe.
