Event

Arborea and Marian McLaughlin & Ethan Foote
Since 2005, Maine based wife and husband Avant Folk duo Shanti and Buck Curran have released 4 albums, curated two various artist compilations ('Leaves of Life' and 'We Are All One, In the Sun': a tribute to Robbie Basho), and performed throughout the US, UK, and Europe...including sessions on the BBC, NPR, WNYC, and WXPN. Arborea's 4th album 'Red Planet' was released in 2011 on the Oregon based label Strange Attractors Audio House.

'Red Planet' received critical praise and made Rolling Stone 'Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011'', 'Editors Top Pick' Guitar Player Magazine December, 'Top Vinyl Pick' Mojo Magazine, Uncut Magazine 'Top 100 Albums of 2011', and Portland Phoenix 'Top Ten Albums of 2011'.  Arborea's 5th album 'Fortress of the Sun' was released April 29th, 2013 on ESP-Disk' coinciding with the label's 50th Anniversary.

This husband-and-wife duo plays a trance-folk that, at every turn in the slipstream, seems to hail from another country: the murder ballads of Appalachia; the plucked-string stasis and Om drone of New York minimalism; the iridescent-Middle East imagination of the Incredible String Band. Singer Shanti and guitarist Buck Curran take Tim Buckley's "Phantasmagoria in Two" at a compelling near-standstill pace; their own "Wolves" is a long circular hush streaked with crying fuzz. Another primary instrument here: the soft oceans of reverb that cushion every minute of this stark and tender balladry.
David Fricke - Rolling Stone

"Buck and Shanti Curran's fifth LP of spellbinding psych folk feels both stronger and frailer than 2011's 'Red Planet', the golden production highlighting the fever-storms and dark sadness in these deep, powerful songs." 4 Stars
Mojo Magazine

****************************

Marian McLaughlin creates lyrically-driven songs with complimentary arrangements on her classical guitar that are delicate yet full of depth. She aims to push folk music's envelope by pairing intricate fingerpicking and explorative chords with expressive themes and rhapsodic delivery. The video for her song "Before You Leave" was recently featured on NPR Music, and she self-released her first studio album Dérive this past January. She's joined live by double bassist Ethan Foote, who has written string arrangements for a handful of her songs.
