“Low Arc was recorded on the winter solstice of 2014 in front of an intimate curated audience at the Secret Society Ballroom in Portland. The effort included some fine local musicians supporting the well-hewn tales spun by local troubadour Ashleigh Flynn — whose wish was to honor the coming of the light with a relevant song cycle.”
