About the Event
Maya de Vitry’s devotion to songwriting is her way of staying present, curious, and imaginative. Pennsylvania-raised and Tennessee-based, Maya first traveled and performed as a fiddling street musician, and then in bars, theaters, and on festival stages as a founding member of The Stray Birds. In 2019, she released her critically-acclaimed solo debut Adaptations, produced by Dan Knobler, and has since emerged as a prolific solo artist. NPR calls Maya’s music “the perfect soundtrack for uncorking that emotion and defiantly loving life again”. Her musical heart is rooted in her love of songwriters like John Prine and Townes Van Zandt, emotive vocalists like Nina Simone and Bonnie Raitt, and the traditions of Appalachian string band music.
Maya enjoys playing live around town in her home base of Nashville, TN, playing shows around the country with her band, and also traveling as a solo singer-songwriter, supporting artists like Aoife O’Donovan, John Craigie, and Fruition. Maya’s live band is a fluid ensemble, showcasing various collaborators.
Singer-songwriter Ethan Hawkins opens at 6:30 pm.
