Americana/folk trio The Stray Birds Performance
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Americana/folk trio The Stray Birds will perform on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Campus Theatre in Lewisburg as part of Bucknell University’s Weis Center Series.

Australian folk artist Jordie Lane is the opening act.

The Stray Birds are known for their songwriting, instrumental virtuosity and gorgeous three-part harmony singing. Raised within a few miles of farmland from each other in Lancaster County, Pa., Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven first shared a song in January 2010. A snowy Pennsylvania winter inspired the collection of seven songs found on their first EP, Borderland.

Two years later, Charles Muench, who contributed upright bass to Borderland, joined the trio who recorded a full-length album, packed a party of seven instruments into a station wagon, and set out to sing for an endless road of towns.

Their full-length debut, The Stray Birds, was lauded by radio stations and listeners across the country and named to the Top 10 Folk/Americana Releases of 2012 by NPR. Passionate live performances led to appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.

 

Tickets for the performance at Bucknell are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 62+ and subscribers, $5 for youth 18 and under, $5 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), free for Bucknell students (limit 2), and $5 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2).

 

Tickets can be purchased online at www.bucknell.edu/BoxOffice or by calling the Campus Box Office at 570-577-1000.

Founded in New York in 1980 by artistic director/choreographer Mark Morris, MMDG has been called “the pre-eminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma), receiving “highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity.” (Bloomberg News).

In 1986 MMDG made its first national television program for the PBS series Dance in America. Two years later, the group was invited to become the national dance company of Belgium, and spent three years in residence at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. The company returned to the United States in 1991 as one of the world’s leading dance companies. From the company’s many London seasons, it has garnered two Laurence Olivier Awards.

The Dance Group tours domestically and internationally to great acclaim, and is distinguished as the only modern dance company with a commitment to live music at every performance, founding the MMDG Music Ensemble in 1996.

Tickets for the performance are $30 for adults, $24 for seniors 62+ and subscribers, $20 for youth 18 and under, $20 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), $10 for Bucknell students (limit 2), and $10 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2).
