We’re thrilled to welcome back The Staves to St George’s Church this November!
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 – while The Independent called the album “magical;” The Guardian, “perfectly gorgeous;” and The Sunday Times, “a debut of stellar beauty and hidden depths.” 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.
Make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to catch this headline performance at the magnificent St George’s Church.
‘Beautiful harmonies are given the space to soar over unadorned acoustic guitar… Great potential.’ – For Folk’s Sake
‘Although the ethereal delicacy of Mexico cuddles the packed venue with its simple lyrical melody, there’s a liquor swigging edge. They’re not merely nice sisters singing ditties — there’s a down to earth Watford drawl amid the beauty of Icarus’ ebbing harmonies, giving a natural credibility which folk often lacks.’ – Londonist
‘The sheer quality of their performance and songwriting means it’s hard not to see The Staves shifting thousands of records and becoming a staple of radio playlists.’ – This Is Nottingham
