he a real down deep player and a soul man..." Seasick Steve
SLIDE guitarist & songwriter Dave Arcari’s alt.blues sounds owe as much to trash country, punk and rockabilly as they do pre-war Delta blues and have been showcased via ten internationally-acclaimed solo CD releases.
Arcari's new album – @Live at Memorial Hall – recorded at a venue close to his home on the eastern shores of Loch Lomond, Scotland, was released on 1 September 2017 on Buzz Records. The double 180g coloured vinyl/digipak CD/download/streaming release is the definitive collection of Arcari's material to date.
2017 also sees Arcari focussing his live work on UK and Europe having been concentrating on building his audience in the USA over the last few years. His 2016 USA tour built on the foundations laid over successful US tours in 2013, 2014 and 2015 – including official showcases at SxSW in Austin, Texas.
Arcari’s festival appearances include Glastonbury (UK), Red Rooster (UK), BluesAlive (Czech Republic & Poland shows), Moulin Blues (Netherlands), The Great British R&B Festival and Peer Festival (Belgium).
With a busy live schedule in the UK plus regular shows in USA, Finland, Estonia, France, Germany, Belgium, Poland and Ireland Arcari is one of the hardest gigging live artists on the circuit.
