Gig: Dave Arcari – The Fallow Cafe, Manchester: Saturday, 8th March, 2014
Posted on: Saturday, Feb 22, 2014
SCOTTISH troubadour DAVE ARCARI plays a show at The Fallow Cafe, Manchester on Saturday, 8th March, as part of a 13-date UK tour to promote his latest album Whisky in my Blood.
Support comes from Mog Stanley.
Arcari, whose 2013 debut US tour was a resounding success (and sees him return to the States later this year) has just returned from a series of dates in Finland which got 2014 off to a good start.
He is particularly excited about Whisky in my Blood: “The label (Blue North, Finland) put the album out on heavy coloured vinyl as well as CD and digital download,” says Arcari. “And although this is my fifth album, the vinyl release makes it feel like my first ‘proper’ record!”
Arcari is currently working on material for his next album scheduled for release later in 2014 on French label, Dixiefrog which released his 2012 album Nobody’s Fool.
Arcari has shared the stage with major artists including country/Americana legend Steve Earle, the mighty Alabama 3, Seasick Steve, Toby Keith and veteran blues-rocker Robin Trower.
A regular at UK and European festivals, Arcari cites recent highlights as 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.
Headline shows in the USA and mainland Europe as well as across the UK continue to take Arcari and his music to a wider audience beyond the confines of any specific genre.
