The Straybirds

12 November


The Stray Birds, an American folk band, started as a duo of acoustic buskers in early 2010 when Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven (originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania) met with their instruments, their voices, and their songs

When the band take the stage, the spotlight falls on three voices raised in 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. From bustling street corners to silent halls, their performances speak to an uncompromising reverence for songs.

The Stray Birds continue on their path to World domination, rapidly becoming one of the hottest bands on the US roots music circuit and now making the same kind of impact much further afield. It is a pleasure to welcome them back to the UK in November 2017.
The Stray Birds have been flying high since the 2012 release of their critically acclaimed self-titled album. Two years, hundreds of gigs, and thousands of highway miles later, the genre-melding acoustic trio prepares to make its Yep Roc Records debut. Known for their songwriting, instrumental virtuosity and gorgeous three-part harmony singing, their most cohesive and ambitious album to date, Best Medicine reached the top of the billboard Bluegrass Chart
The band - multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Maya de Vitry, Oliver Craven, and Charlie Muench - hails from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. All three are classically-trained musicians who've been making music of all kinds since childhood (before they reconnected through the local music scene, de Vitry and Muench first met in middle school orchestra); however, they were also all raised with a steady diet of music ranging from pioneers like The Carter Family and Bill Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys to the joyous invention of The Beatles and The Band, to the groundbreaking artistry of Jimi Hendrix.

Their last album received Magic Fire, produced by Larry Campbell, received critical acclaim and topped many lists of album of the year in 2016.
