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 nine internationally-acclaimed solo CD releases.

Two US tours in 2015 – including official showcases at SxSW in Austin, Texas – built on the foundations laid over successful US tours in 2013 and 2014. He is set to tour the USA again in October 2016.

Arcari’s latest release – the Hellbound Train EP – entered the iTunes blues charts at number seven in June 2016 and a follow up album, provisionally titled Givers & Takers, is scheduled for release later in 2016.

His last album – Whisky in my Blood – was 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.
