The Stray Birds announce UK tour dates

28 September 2016 news Tour News


The Stray Birds, from Pennsylvania, USA, are widely regarded as one of the hottest acts on the roots music scene.

When they released their latest album, MAGIC FIRE, produced by three-time Grammy winner Larry Campbell (best known for his work with the likes of Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon, and Willie Nelson), it created a huge impact both in the USA and in Europe.

The album shot straight to the Number 1 position on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and stormed up the Euro Americana Chart too, to reach the Number 9 slot.

It was not the first time that the band had made an impression with their recorded work.

Their full-length debut, THE STRAY BIRDS was named one of the Top 10 Americana/Folk Releases of 2012 by America’s all-important National Public Radio, but it was their  follow-up, BEST MEDICINE, that finally established them as a major force on both sides of the Atlantic.

When the band arrives for UK tour dates between October 6 and 22, it will be as a four-piece, with the hugely-talented percussionist Dominic Billett added to the line-up.
