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 latest album – Live at Memorial Hall – recorded at a venue close to his home on the eastern shores of Loch Lomond, Scotland,  was released in late 2017 on Buzz Records. The double 180g coloured vinyl/digipak CD/download/streaming release is the definitive collection of Arcari's material to date.

Since then, recent single Brexit Blues and last year's banjo-driven Whisky Trail singles show yet another side of Arcari’s music.

Previously, the 2016 Hellbound Train EP entered the iTunes charts at number seven, filling a gap in releases since his previous (fifth)  album – Whisky in my Blood –  released on Finnish record label Blue North in March 2013. As well as showcasing Arcari’s trademark National steel guitars, the release features performances on banjo, regular guitar and and cigar box which help capture the full breadth of Arcari’s song-writing and performance.

While continuing to build his audience in the USA with once or twice-annual tours since 2013 – including official showcases at SxSW in Austin, Texas – Arcari maintains his presence on the UK and European touring and festival circuits.

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). He has also played industry showcases at the North by North East (NxNE) music festival in Toronto, Canada and he was a finalist the UK Indy Music Awards reaching the top four in his category (best male solo artist).

A series of shows with folks including Steve Earle, Alabama 3, Seasick Steve, Toby Keith and Jon Spencer along with his relentless UK and European tour schedule have established Arcari as a formidable international solo performer who is fast building a media reputation as a 'hell-raising National guitar madman'.

** Special guest is Ismo Haavisto Blues Artist from Finland – a dynamic, one-man-band not to be missed **
