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. Maya de Vitry on fiddle and Oliver Craven on guitar began collaborating in 2010; adding the unshakeable groove of bassist Charles Muench, the trio landed their signature sound.
