Higher Ground 2023 announces The Staves, The Orielles, Tawiah + more

Higher Ground is back and this time, we’re taking over the Roundhouse!

Join us for an all-female line-up of singer-songwriters, genre defying acts and contemporary sounds. Expect impressive live performances from leading international names, DJ sets and more throughout the day and into the night.

Headlining will be one of modern folk-pop’s most astonishing talents, The Staves, who mould their love of Americana and folk with breath-taking sibling harmony and melody. The Orielles perform their most ambitious work to date, Tableau (2022), with a live string section, bringing this new and modern brand of avant-garde, jazz-influenced expressionism to the Roundhouse. With a well-earned reputation at the vanguard of the British alternative soul movement and as one of the country’s most exciting live acts, Tawiah, presents her largest performance yet of poignant second album Ertha (2022) accompanied by a live choir. Plus, expect a haunting and partly-experimental blend of indie folk and lightly psychedelic pop from Irish singer-songwriter Aoife Nessa Frances.
