A year ago, I attended my first Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference in Kerhonkson, New York – a four-day music conference jam-packed with showcasing musicians. Some artists are fairly established, but many are looking to get “discovered” by the folk talent buyers in attendance, folk radio types, managers, publicists, and other folk industry professionals. For me, it’s a great way to reconnect with friends and to discover up and coming artists.
Last year, the highlight of the conference was The Stray Birds – an acoustic trio from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania: Oliver Craven, Maya de Vitry and Charlie Muench. They have it all – chops, great harmonies, songwriting.
In October, Folk Alley caught up with The Stray Birds to record a backstage session before their concert at BluSeed Studios in Saranac Lake, New York.
Here are the videos from that session – enjoy!:
