Smart Bets: The Stray Birds

Folk trio The Stray Birds was born out of two of its members’ travels — Maya de Vitry busking her way across Europe and Oliver Craven traversing the U.S. as vocalist/guitarist/fiddler for Adrienne Young. Bassist Charles Muench rounds out the group. According to the group’s bio, "Often singing into a single microphone, their sound is a raw resonance of wood and strings beneath three joyfully blended voices." And, although they're based in Pennsylvania, their shared love of travel keeps them on the road, touring extensively. The Stray Birds come through Asheville on Saturday, June 30, playing at French Broad Brewery from 6-8 p.m. Free.
