The rise and rise of sibling trio The Staves over the last 18 months has been nothing short of meteoric. Their debut album Dead & Born & Grown received near faultless reviews from the likes of Clash, Mojo, Uncut, and Q.
Aside from selling out their own headline tours, they have also performed as main support to the likes of Bon Iver, The Civil Wars, and Ben Howard. The Staves' live reputation is truly second-to-none, with their exquisite songwriting and close harmonies capable of plunging an audience into awed silence.
It is singing so alluring that The Staves were asked to provide backing vocals for recent albums by both Tom Jones (alongside Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings) and Fionn Regan, and to tour with Willy Mason, Josh Ritter, James Vincent McMorrow, and Mt. Desolation, among others.
Meanwhile, legendary producers Glyn and Ethan Johns (whose combined credits include the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Joan Armatrading, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Kings of Leon, and Laura Marling to name but a few) found The Staves' talents so compelling that they both independently tracked the band down.
Tickets for the concert are priced €20. See here for details.
