Dave Arcari – live at the Ruby Lounge, Manchester
SCOTTISH alt.blues troubadour Dave Arcari returns to Manchester to play a show with Bob Log III at The Ruby Lounge on Monday 5 September 2011. Arcari has just returned from a European tour taking in festivals & clubs in Finland, Estonia and France as well as recording sessions in Helsinki with guest Finnish musicians for a new album to be released on Dixiefrog in early 2012.
Arcari has shared the stage with major artists including country/Americana legend Steve Earle, the mighty Alabama 3, Seasick Steve and veteran blues-rocker Robin Trower. His latest album Devil’s Left Hand is attracting rave reviews and strong radio airplay which are helping him build on previous releases Got Me Electric (2009) and Come With Me (2007).
Over the last 18 months Arcari has delighted audiences at the UK’s biggest festival, Glastonbury; Moulin Blues Festival in Holland; Belgium’s Peer Festival (alongside Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa and Steve Winwood); BluesAlive in the Czech Republic and Poland and a series of headline shows in Estonia, Germany and Ireland as well as across the UK.
Showcased over six CD releases to date, Dave Arcari’s National guitar-driven alt.blues owes as much to trash country, punk and rockabilly as it does pre-war Delta blues.
