Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present Pennsylvania-based, acoustic folk trio The Stray Birds and the indie roots music husband/wife team of Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar (formerly of the acoustic stringband The Mammals) at Next Stage on Thursday, July 24 at 7:30 pm.

Drawing upon the richness of American folk music traditions, the signature power of The Stray Birds sound lies in outstanding songwriting spun with a stirring subtlety and grace. The Stray Birds were born of a compelling collaboration between two unique writers and vocalists - the pure, luxurious voice of Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven's richness of tone and depth of delivery. Grounding their sound is the unshakeable groove of bassist Charles Muench. 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.

Unique and last chance to see a great concert – only 30 tickets (of 300) left.

On July 24th 2014 , The Devil Makes Three will be playing a benefit concert for the Putney Mountain Association’s acquisition and conservation of 144 acres on Holland Hill. This alt-roots acoustic string band, with deep ties to the hills of Putney, has just come off its tour with Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss and is now playing to sell-out crowds in Europe. They will return from the European tour and perform the benefit concert in Putney before they depart to a sold- out performance at the Newport Folk Festival the next day. Known for their tight harmonies and nocturnal howls, The Devil Makes Three has long been making crowds go wild.
