Veteran British rocker Robert Plant amazed residents of a cosy English town in April when he performed at a church’s charity concert.

Led Zeppelin singer joined Traffic front man Steve Winwood and they performed in front of modest audience of around 400 parishioners who rushed into the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Northleach, Gloucestershire.

This annual charity event, which Winwood has supported for several years, was organised by Gordon Jackson, a former musician who used to play with music legends including Jim Capaldi and Dave Mason.

Jackson told Britain’s Gloucestershire Echo newspaper,

“I’m always hopeful when I ask someone. I had his contact detail so I sent him an email asking him if he fancied playing, and got one back within an hour saying yes… I think Steve and Robert have talked about it, but I don’t think they’ve ever played together… Robert performed (Led Zepplin classic) Nobody’s Fault But Mine, and he asked Steve if he wanted to sing a verse or two. So they duetted, I don’t think they’ve ever done that before.”

The event has successfully raised $8,000 (£5,000). The funds will be split between the church and three other charities, Christian charity Open Doors, The Children’s Society, and Christian Aid.
