Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas is the latest album by guitarist-singer-songwriter Buck Curran. 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).
