Arborea at Daytrotter

Arborea records a Daytrotter Session at the Horseshack in Rock Island, Illinois with Engineer Mike Gentry. Sean Moeller and the rest of the crew at Daytrotter are the Best at what they do...archiving some of the most essential 'Live' sessions in the world. We've been big fans of Daytrotter since 2006, so it was a huge honor to work with these guys. Our session is forthcoming, but in the meantime become a member for only $2 a month and get some amazing sessions...Dave Rawlings, Meg Baird, Bon Iver, and Will Oldham to name a few.
