Moreland & Arbuckle
Thursday, August 1st, 2013 at 8:00pm
Guitarist Aaron Moreland and harpist/vocalist Dustin Arbuckle have spent over a decade
exploring the edges of American roots music. In the process, Moreland & Arbuckle have forged
a relentless and haunting sound that merges Delta blues, folk, rock, traditional country, soul
and numerous other echoes and murmurs from an infinitely layered musical narrative that spans
more than a century.
Arbuckle, a native of Wichita, had been playing in a blues rock bar band at the time, but his
truest sensibilities ran a couple generations deeper, into the heart of the Mississippi Delta. He
counts iconic figures like harpists Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williams and guitarist Son House
among his most profound influences.
“It was kind of perfect,” says Arbuckle of the chance encounter between the two musicians.
“We had a shared vision, in a place where there really wasn’t much interest in – or support for
– country blues.”
