The Stray Birds in Europe
Here’s a real treat – and perfect timing too – a sneak peak at what’s in store when the new album from The Stray Birds – Best Medicine – is released in October on the Yep Roc label.
The band is one of the main acts at the massive Tonder Festival in Denmark at the end of August before returning to the UK to tour.

Bob Harris has been playing The Stray Birds for well over a year now and it’s widely known that he’s a big fan. Last time he featured tracks from the band’s Echo Sessions EP, he told listeners to his BBC Radio 2 show: “When the next full-length album comes out, we’ll see them elevated into a kind of folk/bluegrass superstardom.”
…What does HE know!
