All originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, The Stray Birds started as a duo of acoustic buskers in early 2010 when Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven met with their instruments, their voices, and their songs.

It didn’t take much convincing to get bassist Charlie Muench on board, and with the addition of a third unique and powerful voice, the group began to define its captivating sound. Seven years, three original records, and some six hundred performances later, the band is best known today for its song-writing, tight vocal harmony blend and commitment to an impassioned delivery of original material, both on stage and in the studio.

They’ve been seen from LA to London, sung songs from Dallas to Denmark, and played tunes from New York to New Orleans. In 2015, they emerged triumphant from Cambridge Folk Festival with footage included in the TV Highlights coverage of the event.

Their 2016 Yep Roc Records release Magic Fire was produced by Grammy-winner Larry Campbell and established them as a major force, being voted Best Album of The Year in the annual Readers’ Poll at Americana UK. They also carried off the Band of The Year accolade in the same vote at the end of 2016. Aoife O’Donovan plus support
