(LEAMINGTON, ON) – A favourite of the 2015 Kingsville Folk Music Festival is making his way back to the area as part of the Road to Kingsville Folk Fest Concert Series, at the Bank Theatre in Leamington. Dave Gunning, one of Canada’s best Juno-nominated singer/song writers has extended his east coast tour into Ontario.

Lift-Gunning-CD-coverOver the past two decades, Gunning has released 11 albums and has won multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards and eight East Coast Music and Music Nova Scotia Awards. He has won over fans across Canada with his heartfelt songs and humour.

“Gunning is certainly one of the most celebrated songwriters we’ve seen from the Maritimes … he’s joined the ranks of the very best from these parts,” said Bob Mersereau of CBC Music New Brunswick. “As I’ve said before, if you want to know about the Maritimes, get a Dave Gunning album.”

Currently in Australia promoting his latest release Lift, Gunning will be landing in this area when he takes the stage at the Bank Theatre on April 15 at 7:00pm. Tickets are just $20 and may be purchased online.
