The Stapletons with YIHS superstar retrospective (YIHS Benefit)
June 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for a night of amazing music and community to benefit Youth Initiative High School!
We’ll kick off with an open mic featuring past and present YIHS talent, followed by an opening set featuring the amazing music of Anima.
The Stapletons are a harp and guitar, husband and wife duo featuring Casey and Kate Stapleton. Casey, a mariachi from LA married Kate, a Wisconsin farmgirl and original YIHS student. Swept into sooty post-industrial Pittsburgh, The Stapletons set about reconciling their many cultural clashes and started a brood of children. Six years later they sat down one morning in the kitchen with a Celtic harp and a Mexican guitar and began writing music. Their unique style features gritty, blues driven harp riffs, tightly interwoven vocals, and ethereal harmonies. Their music has been described as “wondrous”.
