Bon Iver headlined the Opera House in Cork, Ireland last night as part of the three-day Sounds from a Safe Harbour festival. An expansive, 150-year-old theater in an ancient city is the perfect venue for Bon Iver’s beautiful glitches and acoustic idiosyncrasies, so it’s cool that Franco-German TV network Arte broadcast the full set and then uploaded it to the internet this morning. Highlights include a stunning solo performance of “715 – CR∑∑KS,” a fully stripped-down folk rendition of “Calgary,” and appearances from Fionn Reagan (who played as part of the festival last night) and The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner (whose band will headline the Opera House tonight). There’s also a full choir at the end of “The Wolves” and, buddy, it’s gorgeous. Watch the full 85-minute set above.
