We invite Buck Curran to perform Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas album by US guitarist-singer-songwriter. Since 2005. Buck has recorded and performed as one half of the psych-folk duo Arborea. 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 (2016), Robbie Basho Live in Forli, Italy 1982 (2018), along with his debut solo album Immortal Light.
Buck's music has developed through a decade of playing and touring extensively throughout the US, UK, and Europe with Arborea, and the experience of playing Blues and Folk throughout the 1990s. He also draws inspiration from the deep well of Folk and Rock of the 1960s (Nick Drake, John Martyn, Bert Jansch, Pentangle, Peter Green, Tim Buckley, etc)
Gwenifer Raymond is a Welsh multi-instrumentalist, originally from Cardiff but now residing in Brighton, England. Gwenifer began playing guitar at the age of eight shortly after having been first exposed to punk and grunge. After years of playing around the Welsh valleys in various punk outfits she began listening more to pre-war blues musicians as well as Appalachian folk players, eventually leading into the guitar players of the American Primitive genre. She has since been playing her own moody and often-times manic original American Primitive styled compositions on guitar and banjo around the UK and the US.
