SCOTTISH blues/rock performer Dave Arcari is to play a special show at Matlock Bath Illuminations at the Derwent Gardens Bandstand on Sunday, October 23, from 7pm.

He will be performing as part of a ten-date tour.

After a busy summer playing festival and club dates across Europe, Dave Arcari has just finished work on a new album, to be released on French record label Dixiefrog in early 2012.

Dave Arcari has shared the stage with major artists including country/Americana legend Steve Earle, the 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, all helping him build on previous releases Got Me Electric and Come With Me.

Dave Arcari’s guitar-driven alt.blues owes as much to trash country, punk and rockabilly, as it does to pre-war delta blues.
