First Aid Kit The Piece Hall

Swedish alt-folk duo First Aid Kit have been added to the sensational headline line-up for Live at The Piece Hall 2022.

Sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg have been wowing audiences around the world for more than a decade. And they’re now heading to The Piece Hall in Halifax on Thursday June 23.

First Aid Kit join the likes of Duran Duran, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paloma Faith, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Tom Grennan and Paul Weller among this summer’s headliners to perform in the historic Yorkshire venue’s open-air courtyard.

Hailing from a southern suburb of Stockholm, Klara and Johanna began composing songs as teenagers. They released two studio albums with Wichita Records – The Big Black And The Blue in 2010 and The Lion’s Roar in 2012. Breakthrough single ‘Emmylou’ was also named as one of Rolling Stones Magazine’s Singles of the Year.

They followed their early success with 2014’s Stay Gold. And four years later, Ruins hit Number 3 in the UK album charts. That featured the stunning singles ‘It’s A Shame’ and ‘Fireworks’.

“Sensational live shows”

First Aid Kit’s sensational live shows are famed for being emotionally-charged affairs. They’re also packed with incredible songs, astonishing harmonies and singalong anthems.

This year they’re hitting stages across Europe, USA, Canada as well as festival appearances at Glastonbury and Bristol Sounds. Support at The Piece Hall comes from fast-rising Dublin country pop star CMAT. CMAT’s debut album If My Wife New I’d Be Dead was released only last month. It instantly topped the Irish album chart, winning massive acclaim.

First Aid Kit’s Halifax show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust. Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “First Aid Kit have wowed audiences around the world for more than a decade. And we are so excited to be welcoming the fantastically talented Klara and Johanna here to our courtyard. We have a packed summer of live music ahead of us here at The Piece Hall with truly brilliant headline artists. It’s going to be our biggest and best year ever!”
