Maya De Vitry duo
You may remember Maya as the driving force behind The Stray Birds
She grew up in a musical family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, understanding music to be a place of gathering, a way to spend a summer night around a campfire. Maya first travelled and performed as a fiddling street musician, and then in bars, theatre’s, and onto festival stages as a founding member of The Stray Birds. When the band parted ways in 2018, Maya embarked on an ever-evolving musical path of solo work and new collaborations. Her recordings and live performances embody both sincerity and playfulness, and a compelling reverence for the power of songs to be a place of gathering – whether played on stage, or around a campfire. Maya has shared the stage with innovative singer-songwriters like John Craigie and Aoife O’Donovan, to innovative band’s like The Wood Brothers
“ Maya de Vitry’s dynamic and vibrant voice seems to rise out of some necessity of bringing songs to life, embracing listeners with a soulful intimacy ” Folk Alley
“ Her voice is among the most ethereal and pure in roots music” – Glide Magazine
