The Stray Birds
When The Stray Birds take the stage, the spotlight falls on three voices raised in joyful harmony above the raw resonance of wood and strings. It is a sound drawn from the richness of American folk music traditions, spun with a stirring subtlety and grace. Raised on music within a few miles of farmland from each other, The Stray Birds were born of a compelling collaboration between two unique writers and vocalists– the pure, luxurious voice of Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven’s richness of tone and depth of delivery. Grounding their sound in the unshakeable groove of bassist Charles Muench, Reveling in the energy of each room, a connection to the audience is the essence of The Stray Birds shows. Gathering around one microphone, they create their soaring sound which is best described as stunning, intense, dynamic and steeped in tradition. They have played passionately throughout the country including high profile folk festivals and on Mountain Stage with Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn, Named one of NPR's Top 10 Folk Groups for 2012 – their music resonates with rich American folk traditions and have shaped some of the richest vocal harmonies, tightest acoustic arrangements, and most heart-wrenchingly beautiful songs you'll find anywhere. They may have strayed from the flock, but these classically trained songbirds make a most joyful and memorable noise! Send your spirit soaring and get your tickets today. “Super-talented acoustic trio whose virtuosity doesn’t get in the way of their soul. Rich vocal harmonies, tight acoustic arrangements, heart-wrenching songs.”- Fly Magazine
