Lewiston native and musical luminary Buck Curran will present an afternoon of music hosted by L/A Arts from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, at the LA Arts gallery in Lewiston. Curran will be joined by Liam Grant and special guests Shanti Deschaine (Arborea) and Hiroya Miura.

Curran is an American guitarist-singer-songwriter. Since 2005, Buck has recorded and performed as one half of the alt-folk duo Arborea and as a solo artist, receiving accolades from Rolling Stone, Guitar Player Magazine, and many other critics. In 2020, NPR published a Tiny Desk Concert recorded at his apartment in Bergamo, Italy. Curran has developed his intimate, intense and engaging approach to live concerts through two decades of playing and touring extensively throughout the US, UK, and Europe.

Grant is an acoustic guitar player with a punk ethos, cut from the American Primitive cloth. He made his debut in 2021 with his album “Swung Heavy: Gitarr for Fanatics,” released through the Sound-O-Mat label, which was met with seemingly endless touring through 2022. A split 7-inch single with Mike Gangloff of the veteran improvisers, Pelt, was released in January 2023, and his full length LP “Amoskeag” is in the process of being released through Carbon Records.

Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $15. General admission only. All ages welcome. L/A Arts is located at 168 Lisbon St., Lewiston. For more information, contact L/A Arts at 207-82-7228.
