Blues trio Moreland & Arbuckle just released 7 Cities, a concept album about the 16th Century explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado and his expedition in the Kansas plains searching for the Seven Cities of Gold.

While Coronado never found what he was looking for in the Heartland, guitarist Aaron Moreland & harmonica player Dustin Arbuckle certainly did — when they met at an open mic jam in Wichita, Kan. in 2001. After over a decade playing together, they've fused its rootsy influences into their own brand of blues, country, and roots music.

 

 

 

Set List:

  • "Tall Boogie"
  • "Quivira"
  • "Modern Boy"
