Venue: Ferrara Buskers

The ‘Stilts on the Water’ tour is coming to Europe this summer for a run of shows through Holland, Ireland, Italy and the UK.

This being their 5th European tour, Sophie Kinston, front woman, electric violinist and creative force behind the Tailor Birds sound is returning to Europe with a run of festivals, gigs, spoken word events, and unique street shows.  Launching the pre-release of new record, White Feather, this tour will feature some special local guests along the way.

Thrilled to be playing their first ever Italian festival, and first ever appearance in Italy for Tailor Birds, Ferrara Buskers is one of the biggest street festivals in Europe.

In the festivals’ own words… ‘The Ferrara Buskers Festival, with its 800.000 spectators, is the biggest event in the world dedicated to the art of the street. It was founded in 1988 with the aim of enhancing the role of street musicians and to get to know a city rich in history and charm – objectives which have been fully accomplished.’

With a guest nation and over 300 acts from all over the world appearing throughout the streets, the festival runs from the 17th – 27th August, we’ll be playing the following dates :
