The Stray Birds, who went down a storm on their UK debut at Celtic Connections, are returning to Glasgow for an appearance at The CCA on Thursday, September 11.
The Pennsylvania trio are rightly lauded for the sheer quality of their musicianship and close harmonies. They dig into roots music but seamlessly add a contemporary flavour with songs that reflect their friendship.
The Stray Birds album of the same name is a cracker and in the anticipated release of a new one this year, the band released the “Echo Sessions” EP in January,a five-track tribute to their favourite songwriters such as Townes Van Zandt and Nanci Griffith.
Maya de Vitry on vocals, guitar, fiddle and banjo, Oliver Craven on vocals, guitar and fiddle and Charles Muench on vocal bass and banjo are a subtle and stunning joy to behold.
BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris is a big fan and has been playing tracks from the band regularly. The Stray Birds are mesmerising live, fully meriting the “must see” tag.
