John ‘Dusty’ Dunsterville is an extremely talented professional musician with many years performing experience. He is a member of Bourne End and Cookham Rotary.
John’s father was a school teacher from Farnham Common and his mother a classical musician from Chile.
The youngest of five boys, John had an ambition to be a rock star, somewhat to his parent’s alarm. His first instrument was a ukelele.
John not only has a long history with Rotary but is an accomplished musician who has worked in the music industry for more than 50 years.
He has been a session musician and played on radio and TV, at festivals and venues including Wembley and Madison Square Garden in New York with the likes of Rick Wakeman.
John started out playing with his brother in a band which eventually became Rainbow Ffolly, a psychedelic pop group, in the Sixties.
The group released an album called Sallies Fforth in 1968 for which John designed the sleeve.
John is still playing and made some recordings last year which included some new songs he wrote.
He runs a successful blues club near High Wycombe which has an array of interesting acts.
