Dave Gunning

June 23rd, 7:30pm

“Truly, what makes Gunning so remarkable as an entertainer is his rare gift to be able to

befriend the audience as a whole from the stage throughout the course of the concert.

And, indeed, you do feel as though he’s as good of a friend as any after

a night of songs, stories and lighthearted laughs.” – The Guardian


Gunning’s recording career is now approaching a full two decades in length (his debut album, Lost Tracks, came out in 1996).

Along with richly-deserved peer respect, he has also earned a shelf full of music industry awards. That tally now stands at eight East Coast Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus a 2012 Juno Award nomination in the Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year category for his album …a tribute to John Allan Cameron, a compelling homage to another of Dave’s Maritime musical heroes.

His songwriting skill has also been internationally recognized, with earlier tunes scoring victories and high placings in some major international songwriting competitions. As a fervent hockey fan, Gunning was also thrilled to win the CBC’s hotly-contested Hockey Night In Canada Song Quest in 2014 with “A Game Goin’ On”, a co-write with David Francey.
