“Dave 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, Coburn and Stan Rogers before him.” -- Greg Quill, The Toronto Star
Dave Gunning is the winner of a staggering 7 Music Nova Scotia Awards, 5 East Coast Music Awards, 2 Canadian Folk Music Awards and is a Juno Award Nominee!

There are stories that wash over you like a tide, and then there are stories that grab you by the heart. Dave Gunning has made a point of finding the latter and wrapping them up in song since he broke upon the East Coast music scene in Canada back in 1997. The Pictou County, Nova Scotia born and bred singer-songwriter and working class hero has built up from humble beginnings to a point where his name is regularly included in conversation with artists such as David Francey, James Keelaghan, Ron Hynes, Stan Rogers, Bruce Cockburn and Gordon Lightfoot. Writing from a sonic menu that includes flavours of Irish, Scottish, French Acadian, folk and country musical styles, Dave Gunning transcends genre with songs that fill your senses and touch your soul.

Joining Dave as a special guest for the evening will be Victoria's own songstress Colleen Eccleston.

Advance tickets $20 at Lyle's, Ivy's Books, Long & McQuade and online at | $25 at the door
