Maya de Vitry w/Alexa Rose at The Word Barn

The Word Barn Meadow
66 Newfields Road
Exeter, NH 03833
United States

Pennsylvania-raised and Tennessee-based, Maya first appeared on the folk scene in 2012 as a founding member of The Stray Birds. When the hard-touring band dissolved in 2018, Maya began to steadily release powerful music under her own name—Adaptations in 2019, followed by 2020’s How to Break a Fall—writing boldly about borders, bodies, abuse, power, and love, with great imagination and empathy.

The title of Maya de Vitry’s 3rd solo album, lifted from a line in the lead single “Not a Trick of the Eye”, is a reference to “ultraviolet” light—a frequency which, while visible to creatures like butterflies and bees, lies beyond any human sense. It’s a reminder of a simple human limitation and an inspiring concept for an artist who feels most at home in the woods or the garden, observing the non-human living world and then emerging with vibrant and vital songs on the human condition—songs that, as No Depression says, “open windows that give us insights into the ambiguities of our lives.”

Special guest Nashville singer/songwriter Alexa Rose.

This is an open-air, limited-capacity event.
