The Stray Birds

The Stray Birds Music Has Grown As They Have Grown Up Together

There is probably a band much like our guests today The Stray Birds in many towns, but few as good. The Stray Birds are a folk based trio from Lancaster, Pennsylvania who have known each other since middle school and have been playing in various configurations. Maya de Vitry, Oliver Craven, and Charlie Muench got together as a trio in 2012 and have just released their first album on Yep Roc Records called Best Medicine. Strong harmonies and writing highlight this music. They'll play a set in front of a live audience and talk with the Cafe's Michaela Majoun.
