Kilkenny gets another act for the first time tonight (Wednesday).
The Staves are new to the Marble City, but with shows selling out across Ireland and the UK they’ve decided to stop off at Set Theatre to showcase their songs. Debut album Dead & Born & Grown received flawless reviews from the likes of Clash, Mojo, Uncut, and Q magazine.
They have performed as main support to the likes of Bon Iver (02 Dublin 2012), 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.
Support from English musician James Canty. Tickets for tonight’s gig are priced at €15 are on sale from set.ie and Rollercoaster records.
