Arborea & Cuddle Magic
All Ages Free Daytime Concert
You are cordially invited to a new monthly series of daytime concerts open to music-lovers of all ages. Our first concert features Lewiston-based husband and wife duo, Arborea, and NYC-based chamber-folk sextet, Cuddle Magic.
Since 2005, Arborea have released five albums and toured all over the U.S. and Europe, garnering them features in Rolling Stone, Mojo Magazine, on NPR, KEXP, BBC and much more. Their newest record, ‘Fortress of the Sun’ was released in 2013 by legendary experimental music label, ESP-Disk.
Cuddle Magic is a band and songwriting collective that performs lush, playful songs with wide-ranging instrumentation, including percussion, vibraphone, trumpet, clarinet, keyboards, guitars and many voices. Their music balances folk timbres with surprising atonal harmonies, pop song-craft with Steve Reich-inspired rhythmic complexity, and direct emotional lyrics with dense wordplay. The members of Cuddle Magic have collaborated with a wide range of artists, including Beyonce, Anais Mitchell, Amanda Palmer, The David Wax Museum, Joan as Policewoman, Zeena Parkins, Rubblebucket, Darius Jones, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, and Fred Frith.
