(LEAMINGTON, ON) – The Road To Kingsville Folk Fest presented multi-award winner Dave Gunning to a sold out crowd on April 15 at the Bank Theatre, in Leamington. Gunning had the crowd on their feet for not one, but two standing ovations.
Over the span of his career, Dave Gunning has released eleven albums, received a Juno Award nomination, has been awarded two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and recognized with eight East Coast Music Awards. Gunning is touring in support of his new album Lift and was a crowd favourite at the 2015 Kingsville Folk Fest.
The evening was a joint fund raising effort and was presented by the Sun Parlour Folk Music Society & The Sun Parlour Players Community Theatre.
More concerts are planned for the 2016 concert series and will be announced at a later date while organizers prepare for the 3rd annual Kingsville Folk Music Festival from August 12 to 14 at Lakeside Park in Kingsville.
Headlining this year’s festival is Cree singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and winner of countless awards including Oscar, Polaris, Juno, and Golden Globe, among them, Buffy Sainte-Marie.
The festival is a 3-day, 5-stage, ticketed, outdoor celebration of all styles of folk music and will host more than 30 national and international performers, children’s activities, prominent artisans, local foods, Pelee Island Wines, and craft beers.
