Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations (Wichita, USA)


SAMEDI LE 10 AOÛT – 23h00




Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations avec son invité, Mike Morgan (Wichita, Kansas, USA)

Il est membre fondateur de Moreland et Arbuckle, acclamé depuis toujours par la critique. Après 15 ans, 7 albums et des centaines de spectacles dans 23 pays, Moreland & Arbuckle ont choisi de se séparer à l’amiable.

Lorsqu’une porte se ferme, une autre s’ouvre, et Arbuckle est maintenant prêt à explorer le monde de la musique avec son nouveau projet, Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations. Musicien au large appétit, il appréciait depuis longtemps la musique traditionnelle américaine dans l’esprit de Charley Patton, ainsi que les groupes The Band et Stax.

Originaire du Kansas, le classique de Leadbelly, «Gallows Pole» est son premier souvenir musical. Il est ensuite devenu un fervent adepte du blues au moment où il atteignait l’adolescence. Les groupes Allman Brothers, puis Johnny Cash, Sam & Dave ou Tom Petty & Les Heartbreakers deviennent rapidement ses références. Lors de son passage à Donnacona, nous aurons le plaisir de voir en sa compagnie sur la scène nul autre que Mike Morgan, l’un des plus réputés guitaristes blues/rock aux États-Unis.


As a founding member of the critically acclaimed progressive roots outfit Moreland and Arbuckle, vocalist/harmonica player Dustin Arbuckle has been working hard on the road for over a decade. After 15 years, 7 albums, and hundreds of shows across 23 countries, Moreland & Arbuckle have chosen to amicably go their separate ways.

As one door closes, another opens, and Arbuckle is now ready to explore a wide range of music with his new project, Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations. A musician of vast appetites, he’s long held an appreciation for traditional American music in the vein of Charley Patton as well as the cross-pollinated sounds of The Band or Stax-style soul.

The Kansas native marks hearing the Leadbelly classic “Gallows Pole” as his earliest music memory, becoming an astute devotee of the blues by the time he’d reached his teens. “That turned out to be a jumping off point, though,” he says. “I always loved Howlin’ Wolf, but as I got older and started opening my mind to a wider range of music, I’d turn around and listen to the Allman Brothers Band, then Johnny Cash, Sam & Dave,  or Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I hope you’ll hear some of that reach with The Damnations.”

Arbuckle is eager to take to stages with The Damnations. “This is a time to shake things up a bit and see what comes out,” he says. “The direction the music will go in isn’t set in stone and that’s a cool place to be at the moment.” He adds that he hopes to record with a version of the group in the near future. “I think this will open new possibilities for songwriting too,” he says. “It feels like anything could happen.” During his visit to Donnacona, we will have the pleasure of seeing in his company on the stage none other than Mike Morgan, one of the most famous blues / rock guitarist in the United States.
