TWO of the UK’s top acoustic blues artists – and fellow finalists in the 2023 UK Blues Awards – are joining forces to bring a double-bill show to Dunfermline's PJ Molloys, on Friday, March 15.

Scottish slide guitarist and songwriter Dave Arcari will be joined by special guest Trevor ‘Babajack’ Steger for just two special shows – the Dunfermline date and another the following night (March 16) at Buchanan Memorial Hall, near Arcari's home close to Loch Lomond.

For Arcari the dates follow the recent release of his latest album Devil May Care on limited edition red vinyl, and a new single, Younger Days, a curve ball that sees Arcari injecting a little bit of Americana into his more familiar deep blues sound.

Arcari is delighted to have Trevor join him for the shows.

He said: “We’ve been pals for a long time and shared the stage many times over the years - most recently at last year’s Upton Blues Festival.

“And we were both finalists in last year’s UK Blues Awards, which Trevor went on to win.”

As well as the two Scottish gigs with Trevor, Arcari is also looking forward to playing festivals in Romania, Czech Republic and Finland – as well as the UK – later in the year.

At the same time he is busy writing new material for what will be his eighth full-length solo album.

Arcari is an an official artist for Newtone Strings, Reunion Blues gig bags, Diamond Bottlenecks, G7th Capo and National Reso-Phonic Guitars, who launched their ‘Dave Arcari signature’ instruments in 2019.
