Hi everybody, This is Buck and Shanti calling out to anyone that might be interested in helping to make a special once in a lifetime project become a reality. Arborea has evolved far past our current means, our imaginations are exploding with creativity, and we have many new songs to record. Sadly though, our once faithful old recording machine has finally kicked the bucket! So here we are with loads of music and no way to record it. Our goal is to make the ultimate ‘Arborea’ record without limitations of any kind and document it on film. We plan to invite some amazing musicians and artists (drums, cellos, and walls of guitar and banjo) from around the world to be involved to help us realize this vision. We will also be pressing a special limited run of the recording on Vinyl. When the record is finished Shanti and I, along with our two children will embark on a tour across America…from our home in Maine to the golden shores of California and up to the grand mountains of the Pacific Northwest (this tour will include private house concerts for folks who end up helping us achieve our goal). After touring America we will fly across the Pond to play shows in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and England…and finish up our World Tour in Europe. Of course we would absolutely love to perform in Australia and Japan, if there is anyone that wants to bring us over!

On the road we will also be helping to promote the hunger relief benefit compilation cd that we have curated titled ‘Leaves of Life’. All proceeds from the sales of Leaves of Life will be going to support vital hunger relief efforts run by the UN World Food Program.
