CANCELLED Arkansas Dave

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled.

Arkansas Dave’s sound is rooted in the music created by his predecessors. From the blues to gospel to rock n roll, his work comes full circle showcasing his raw talent.

His self-titled debut album features original songs blended with the sounds of the South. See him live at The Atkinson on his first European tour.

You definitely want to be able to turn around to all your mates in 6 months and tell them you were the one who discovered him first. – Music-News

Born and raised in the piney swamps of Camden (Arkansas) he started his musical journey playing the drums at five years old, by 12 he was playing the guitar every Sunday in church and soon after started playing in dive bars and the best honky tonks in Arkansas and Texas.

Since his relocation to Austin, Texas, he has played with several Texas artists including Guitar Shorty, the Hard Pans (Jimmy Smith & Claude Bernard of the Gourds), Mickey White, Dr. Zog, Kari K and was the band leader/drummer for his own group, Ouachita (‘wah-shi-tah). From the muddy bayous of South Arkansas to the Hill Country of Texas, this vagabond sees the world through music.

His music career has led him across the United States into Canada and to Japan to study taiko under Art Lee and the late, great Daihachi Oguchi Sensei. As the next chapter of Arkansas Dave’s career unfolds, the world will hear the other side of his musical personality.
