Buck Curran, of the art-folk duo Arborea, comes to the UCCPA for an intamate sharing of his debut solo album Immortal Light. To date, Arborea has released five albums, including 2013's ESP-Disk' release Fortress of the Sun, and produced two various- artist compilations (Leaves of Life: a benefit for the World Food Program and We Are All One, In the Sun: a tribute to Robbie Basho). Buck has also produced a second tribute to Robbie Basho, Basket Full of Dragons, that was released in 2016 on Obsolete Recordings.
Buck's music has developed through a decade of playing with Arborea, and the experience of playing Blues and Folk throughout the 1990s. He also draws inspiration from the deep well of American and British Folk and Folk Rock of the 1960s and early 70's (Tim Buckley, Robbie Basho, Martin Simpson, Pentangle, and Davey Graham).
'Immortal Light', Curran’s first album under his own name invokes swarming natural forces, looking for the borderline between the real and the sublime and, maybe, the supernatural.
