Dave Gunning

Over the span of his career, Dave Gunning has received a Juno Award nomination and has been awarded two Canadian Folk Music Awards, along with eight East Coast Music Awards. The Maritime folk singer-songwriter has released his 11th solo album Lift, the first that was self-produced.  Influenced by folk icons John Allen Cameron and Stan Rogers, his songs reflect on folk, roots and celtic music, rich in storytelling.  “Gunning is the next big thing in the True North of Song, an artist as compelling, as assured and attentive to every nuance of the writing process, as Lightfoot, Cockburn and Stan Rogers before him.” (Toronto Star)
