Doors opened at 19:00 for the chamber pop, folktronica band who hail from
Fall Creek, Wisconsin in the US with support from 'Mikaela Davis' who treated the sold out crowd with a 45 minute set with her harp. 'Justin Vernon' and co took to the stage at 21:15 and started with '22 (OVER S∞∞N)', the next 8 songs during the set were from the latest album '22, A Million' which was released back in 2016 on the 30th of September. Fans got more of a treat with the band playing songs from previous albums'For Emma, Forever Ago' and their self titled album 'Bon Iver' also from their 'Blood Bank' EP by peforming 'Babys' and 'Woods', during the set they also done an beautiful cover of 'Take It With Me' by 'Tom Waits' mentioning that 'The Edinburgh Playhouse' is 'Tom Waits' favourite ever room to perform in. 'Mikaela Davis' joined the band on stage to perform a stunning, passionate performance of 'Flume' not long before their first encore. The concert finished at 22:45 with the band ending the set with one of the fan favourites 'Skinny Love'.
