Arborea, Mariee Sioux

When: Tue., Sept. 4, 8 p.m. 2012

Solemnity is a gift that Buck and Shanti Curran of the Maine folk duo Arborea possess in spades. A classic husband-and-wife pair in many regards, the Currans present a distinct combination of ghostly intuition and rigorous folk discipline. In spare blends of guitar, banjo and harmonium, Arborea's music communicates a far-carried warmth, as if they have come from a place much more distant than Maine. It is a place accessed with the purchase of a warbling suitcase turntable and an LP copy of last year's Red Planet, or through a visit with the Currans at one of their shows. California singer-songwriter Mariee Sioux opens; both acts also play Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the Nightlight in Chapel Hill, with local opener Sarah Shook ($10/9:30 p.m.). —Jesse Jarnow
