The Stray Birds on Center Stage

Written by Cary Burkett, Arts & Culture Desk and WITF Host | Jan 9, 2014 9:27 AM

 Saturday, January 11, 8 p.m. on witf's Center Stage





The Stray Birds are Oliver Craven, Maya de Vitry and Charlie Muench, all raised within a few miles of each other in Lancaster County. That common background may play a part in how they achieve such incredibly tight vocal harmonies when they perform as a folk trio.

They have performed a lot throughout the area and a lot of people are starting to take notice of their unique sound. Their CD, titled The Stray Birds, was chosen as one of the top ten folk/Americana albums of 2012 by NPR. Definitely worth checking out.


When they performed in an intimate house concert at Live from the Cellar in Lancaster, their concert was recorded by Keith Wilson of MOSAIC, and you can hear the result on witf’s Center Stage on July 13, staring at 8 pm.  Though they play a few covers of other artists, most of the concert is made up of their own original material.  And throughout the concert, the Stray Birds share conversation about their music with Center Stage hosts Cary Burkett and Joe Ulrich.




Also, we shine the Center Stage Spotlight on singer/songwriter Suzi Brown for a feature on her music, and hear from Jason Mundok from Wood Stove House about the Live from the Cellar venue.
