The Rusty Datsuns’ have been winning hearts and inciting hoedowns since their formation during the infamous 2011 floods. It was an extraordinary twist of fate that brought the three respected, prolific and slightly crazy musicians, Sian Evans (Bessy-Lou, Pollysasin), Fern Thompsett (These Dirty Bones) and Alex Skinner (Chocolate Strings), together. Keeping high and dry in an old Queenslander while the Brisbane flood waters rose around them, the Dattos music was forged with no power, some instruments and a few rain buckets of talent, the unlikely combination yielding a rare musical chemistry.
Combining sweet vocal harmonies over a backdrop of deftly finger-picked guitar, banjo, ukelele and soaring fiddle the ‘Dattos’ live show has crowds dancing jigs and making merriment aplenty with their spellbinding performance, a fresh take on modern folk with a healthy bluegrass twinge.

Your Tattoo's are only as permanent as you are... a curiously cautionary tale in it's mournful ode to raw life and 'drinking whiskey in the scorching sun'.
