Dave Gunning

With a career spanning over two decades and 12 albums, Dave Gunning is one of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters who has earned multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Juno nomination and eight East Coast Music Awards for his well-crafted work. Dave has gained a reputation for being a great storyteller and engaging performer who has the profound ability to take listeners on a musical journey through his songs. Much of his material is about the underdogs, heroes, family, the heart and reflects the messaging of social justice and carrying about the world around us. The fruits of those labours are now vividly on display in his latest collection of songs, Up Against The Sky.

“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
“… one of the rising stars in Canadian folk music.” - TheRecord.com

“A gifted and prolific writer, he is also a delightful entertainer with a gentle humility and a charming wit, someone who can hold an audience in the palm of his hands.” - The Cape Breton Post
