Eric Arthur plays piano with Bucucrasu & The Slimline Shufflers. Our style is rooted in the New Orleans blues and boogie tradition, drawing inspiration from legends Dr John and James Booker. We enjoy composing tunes that break new musical ground, with a rich mix of influences that includes jazz, latin, hip hop, folk and classical – and some odd metered grooves to keep everyone on their toes! We also bring a fresh take to the blues classics.
The great Professor Longhair was memorably described as the “Bach of Rock”. In our own West Country way, we are proud to continue the exploration of the motherlode of funk that is the New Orleans blues style.
