Oxford Blues Festival 2022 Spotlight: DuWayne Burnside

DuWayne Burnside will play at 2 pm on Saturday, October 8, 2022

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter DuWayne Burnside is one of fourteen children born to legendary North Mississippi musician R.L. Burnside and his wife, Alice.

DuWayne has been a frequent performer with the North Mississippi Allstars since the early 1990s, when that group, fronted by Luther & Cody Dickinson, formed.

The young Burnside learned his first few guitar licks and chords from his father, but proved a quick study and soon began playing with local club owner Junior Kimbrough & The Soul Blues Boys.

DuWayne has recorded for many record labels and he continues to play and tour, keeping the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues flourishing.
