Folk psych-rock collaboration Arbouretum/Hush Arbors are once again joining forces for a 4 date UK tour. They play at The Kazimier on 4th May promoting their debut split album Aureola. Their Aureola album is a project that links two highly revered artists on one LP, Hush Arbors, aka songwriter Keith Wood and Arbouretum, the project of Dave Heumann have each produced a side of the album, recently given Uncut magazine’s seal of approval.

Wood mostly trades in jangling Byrds-esque territory, while Heumann deals in Anglo-folk rock, with the influences of American touchstones such as Crazy Horse and The Velvet Underground also present across the record.

The duo are signed to highly revered label Thrill Jockey, whose roster includes some of North America’s greatest bands at the present time, Wooden Shjips, Fiery Furnaces, White Hills and High Places. The sessions that produced Aureola were so successful a follow-up is being planned for the Autumn once live commitments are complete.

Separately, the press have said of the individual acts, ‘Arbouretum arises out of the psychedelic swamp blazing with an almost shamanic power’ (New York Press) while Hush Arbors were described by Wooden Wand as ‘fluid and lucid and frequently dazzling’.

Canadian folk quartet The Barr Brothers will be main support on the night, the four-piece are presently touring the UK including a date at the influential Camden Crawl festival. The duo of Brad and Andrew Barr are backed by harpist Sarah Page and Andres Vial on keys. Recent single ‘Beggar in the Morning’ saw the four-piece perform on US TV on the legendary Late Night with David Letterman, giving their profile a huge boost.
