Moreland & Arbuckle rocked the Western Maryland Blues Fest last year so much, the festival couldn’t wait until the next Blues Fest t o bring them back. Moreland & Arbuckle will be back in Hagerstown, Maryland this Thursday to play the Cabin Fever Blues Bash at the historic Maryland Theatre.
The show is scheduled to start at 7PM on March 7, 2013. The concert is part fundraiser, part celebration, and a night full of great music. The concert raises funds for the Blues Fest, it celebrates all the details about the festival that will be announced at the show, and Moreland & Arbuckle will provide the great music.

Moreland & Arbuckle reached the finals of 2005 International Blues Competition in Memphis, Tennessee. The duo won the 2008 CD of the Year Award from the Indie Acoustic Project and was a nominee for the 2008 Blueswax artist of the year. Now that the duo has established themselves with four plus releases, a strong following, it wouldn’t surprise me if they won more awards soon.
Moreland rocks out on the guitars. He even rocks out on the cigar box guitars from time to time. The cigar box guitar has four strings and dates back to the poor days of the blues. Arbuckle delivers the edgy vocals and driving harmonica playing. Their music seeded in the roots of blues is delivered with the energy of a rock garage band. The results are a driving, rocking blues with unbelievable energy. You can learn more about the band at their website. Certainly with their great music and high energy they will make you forget about winter and look forward to the Blues Fest.
