KIERAN T. STEVENSON AT ST JOHN’S
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Oxford Street BulimbaSt John The Baptist Church

EVENT DETAILS
Kieran T. Stevenson’s performance at St. John The Baptist Church on Saturday 14th November 7-9pm, with guitarist Joe Rabjohns, takes on a similar concept to the Heavenly Sounds tours that sees artists (such as Laura Marling, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Sarah Blasko) touring around the country playing in cathedrals and churches. The stillness and peacefulness of the church space allows for somewhat of a repurposing, reactionary performance of Kieran’s alternative pop songs, creating a focus on storytelling in a dreamy, ethereal setting, not usually achievable in standard live music venues.
