Arborea, Indie folk/Psych folk duo from Maine. Formed in the summer of 2005 by husband and wife team Buck and Shanti Curran, their music follows in the progressive folk tradition of the American Iconic guitarists/composers John Fahey, and Robbie Basho, British Folk group Pentangle, as well as contemporaries Marissa Nadler, Espers, Devendra Banhart, and Iron and Wine. Buck plays guitar, slide guitars, bowed strings, flutes, banjo, and vocals. Shanti provides lead vocals, banjo, ukulele, bowed strings, harmonium, and percussion. Their songs are, as described by George Parsons of Dream Magazine,” Low key intimate spellcasting affairs; the fact that they are a couple might help to explain the seamless organic blending of their music together. Conjuring truly transportational magic out of the simplest ingredients. Their songs might be a hundreds of years old, and there’s little here to lock them into any moment other than forever”. In October of 2006 the duo released their first cd ‘Wayfaring Summer to glowing reviews and airplay throughout the U.S., the U.K., and Europe. In 2007 Arborea performed at the Green Man Festival in the U.K (with a lineup that included Robert Plant, and Joanna Newsom), the Tanned Tin Festival in Spain, and the Time of Rivers Festival in Portland, Maine.
