Experience an intimate holiday celebration with multiple award–winning, Dave Gunning as he shares his stories and songs in a musical tribute to Christmas past and present.
“ Christmas Too” is a festive celebration of original and classic holiday favourites that is sure to wrap audiences in a warm blanket of rich acoustic sound, textured with smooth, sultry vocals and innovative arrangements. Fittingly titled, “Christmas Too” follows on the heels of his 2006 holiday release, “Dave Gunning Christmas” which included the seasonal holiday hit, ‘Daddy’s Beer’ (co-written with Jamie Robinson) and his 2008 duet recording, “Candles and Evergreens” recorded with good friend George Canyon.
Dave has released nine recordings and has been awarded six East Coast Music Awards since 2003 and took home two 2011 ECMA Awards for his recording, “.. a tribute to John Allan Cameron” (for Roots Traditional Recording of the Year and Producer of the Year) and honoured with four Canadian Folk Music Award nominations. Gunning was the winner of the Indie International Song Contest (for his song, “Hard Workin’ Hands, co-written with Ron Hynes) and has been awarded a finalist in the Great American Song Contest, the USA Songwriting Competition, the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the International Songwriting Contest. All of the hardware and certificates aside, however, it is the personal connection that Gunning’s music engenders that is the greatest testament to his craft.
A seasoned performer and entertainer, Dave has toured extensively both solo and with his band, performing to sold-out venues, festivals, house concerts and theatres throughout Canada, the U.S., the U.K. , and Denmark. Engaging and charismatic, Dave's magnetic gift of captivating audiences by creating a bond through down-to-earth details, homespun humour and seasoned musicianship will be in full display this festive season.
