“transformed into something brimming with life” (The Quietus) in this concert based around Sufjan Stevens’ latest
album, Carrie & Lowell.
One of the most
admired musicians of the last decade, Stevens ascended even greater creative heights in 2015,
with Carrie & Lowell — inspired by the death of his mother — widely

Stevens and his band’s “radiant rendering” (The Irish Times) of Carrie
& Lowell, with its “masterful and carefully shorn” lyrics and music (Pitchfork),
along with a selection of other songs from across his remarkable career.
