Since the release of their 2006 debut Wayfaring Stranger, I loved the music of the Maine based folk duo Arborea.
A couple in real life, Buck (mainly guitars) and Shanty (main vocals), are doing a pastoral, intimate and heart touching folk music, drawn from the American tradition with some influences of the British isles.
Buck is also a luthier (guitar builder) and also the producer of the Robbie Basho tribute album We Are All One In The Sun, and overall a very nice guy. Their new album Hunter Gatherers is scheduled for 2011, but until then, they share the beautiful Careless Love (Dream Surf Mix). Enjoy.
