ALT.BLUES musician Dave Arcari headlines a special show on Saturday, March 9 at Buchanan Memorial Hall, Milton of Buchanan, by Drymen to raise funds for Yorkhill Children’s Foundation.

Also appearing is Glasgow musician JonZip McNeill and Edinburgh singer/songwriter Lee Patterson.

Arcari, whose new album Whisky in my Blood is scheduled for release (CD, vinyl and download) on Finnish label Blue North on March 25, raised over £1000 for the charity last May when he had his trademark beard shaved off in Glasgow by former River City hairdresser John Comerford.

The performer, who lives near Drymen, 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 Finland, Estonia, Germany and Ireland as well as across the UK continue to take Arcari and his music to a wider audience beyond the confines of any specific genre.
