Delta Sunrise sometimes plays as a trio or a foursome, but at the 3rd Bury Folk Festival we’re performing as a stripped down duo - John Rushton and Dave Rushton - focussing mainly on traditional Delta blues and gospel. Dave plays National Resonator guitars and, for this outfit, John plays percussion. A stripped-down set is great fun with a very immediate feel.
We pride ourselves on being versatile and being able to switch between styles. We both play in a Celtic trio called The Molly Maguires, Dave is in the Milkmaid Blues Club house band Milking the Blues and John has played guitar in The Volunteers (a post-modern punk band).
Delta Sunrise play whenever we can at the Bury Folk Collective - but whether its Celtic or Blues the traditional side has the strongest attraction for us.
