THE STRAY BIRDS
When The Stray Birds 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.
Hailing from southeastern Pennsylvania, The Stray Birds have crafted an original sound that draws upon the richness of American folk music traditions. Talented multi-instrumentalists who perform with captivating musicality, the signature power of their sound lies in outstanding songwriting that soars in three-part harmony.
Maya de Vitry grew up with one foot firmly planted in old-time music festival dirt and the other on stage with symphony orchestras. She has traveled across North America and Europe as a street musician, and now brings a fiddle, a banjo, a guitar, a compelling voice, and award-winning songwriting to The Stray Birds.
Also a classically-trained violinist, Oliver Craven has spent the past four years lending his talents on the fiddle, mandolin, and guitar to stages across North America in various acoustic outfits. The Stray Birds feature Craven’s arresting original songs and vocals.
A classically-trained bassist who now artfully dances between a myriad of styles, Charles Joseph Muench brings his unshakeable groove and powerful vocals to The Stray Birds. He can also be found playing the banjo at breakfast.
