Hackney Church, July 13: the Staveley-Taylors give magnificent recent album 'Good Woman' the reverential atmosphere it deserves

On the day of the release of their latest album, ‘Good Woman', Jess, Millie and Emily Staveley-Taylor walked on to London's Lafayette with a virtual audience sat at home in their living rooms waiting to hear The Staves. It's not quite live music as we know and love, and this performance would only make us miss it more.

This evening at the Festival Gardens was billed as a night of sparkling eclecticism in harmony and that is what the two very different acts on offer delivered. One would be more dynamic, the other more pure, but both impressed with their vocal craft.
