The Stray Birds to perform at the Carey Institute for Global Good

Top folk band to rock the Carey Center stage

RENSSELAERVILLE, NY – After being voted one of the top ten Americana/Folk Albums of 2012 by National Public Radio for their self-titled debut album, The Stray Birds will take center stage to perform at the Carey Center For Global Good on Saturday, April 27. This will be a night of great music and fun following the EN Huyck Preserve’s Annual Bird Festival.

“We’re looking forward to having The Stray Birds on stage at the Carey Center,” said Carol Ash, President of the Carey Center For Global Good. “The sound of the band draws on the richness of American folk music.”

The Stray Birds are a trio of musicians from Lancaster County, PA. Maya de Vitry, Oliver Craven and Charles Muench have an undeniable passion for acoustic folk music. All three play instruments and have been through the ringer of the music industry before finding their footing. After releasing their debut album in July 2012, this group is looking to go nowhere but up.
