The Staves

Headshot of the three members of the staves

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of their debut album, Dead & Born & Grown, The Staves perform a special show featuring the songs that established their breath-taking sibling harmony and melody. 

Dead & Born & Grown introduced us to the sibling trio – Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor – and their captivating harmonies. Since its debut, The Staves have earned acclaim as one of modern folk-pop's most astonishing talents. Their songs resonate so deeply with their fans that they’ve become cover version standards on YouTube, with fans regularly uploading phone-filmed cover renditions.

This intimate, stripped back show will see the three sisters play the full original album alongside a handful of fan favourites from their critically acclaimed second and third albums, If I Was & Good Woman

Start time: 8pm

Approximate running time: 90 mins, no support and no interval.
