The Stapletons Set For 'What Child Is This' Single Following 'Ballads And Battles' Release

Nov 16 2017

The Stapletons, a husband and wife, harp and guitar duo are set to release their very first Christmas single on Dec. 1st. Their version of the classic 'What Child Is This' features harp, acoustic and classical guitar, drums, and intertwined vocal harmony.

In September The Stapletons released their new album 'Ballads And Battles'. Together, the duo write baroque folk rich with hints of Appalachian balladry, Delta blues, and echoes of the English folk revival movement. Blues-driven harp and guitar arrangements topped by ethereal vocal harmonies combine to create a wondrous sound.


Casey, a mariachi from LA married Kate, who grew up in Middle Ridge, WI. 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, “chamber folk” style features blues driven harp riffs, tightly interwoven vocals, and ethereal harmonies. Inspired by their home surrounded by civil war ghosts, this husband wife duo write intricate songs that bring the past alive, illuminate the present, and lift listeners into the stars.
