British-born, Paris-based Kate Stables — the intimidatingly talented artist behind This is the Kit — has been delighting stages since 2008. Her seventh album Careful Of Your Keepers, a work of fragile wonder that was produced by Gruff Rhys, came out last year. Live, she surrounds herself with friends on stage (including Rozi Plain on bass), while she flits between guitar, banjo, trumpet, and percussion, singing all the while.
