Last night those in attendance at the Fish Hatchery were treated to a fabulous concert by singer/sonwriter Dave Gunning. This is an interesting and unique place for a concert. The acoustics are quite good. The audience loved his songs, stories and performance. There were lots of his own original songs, mixed with ones he had co-written or perfpormed with other well-known performers such as Ron Hynes (coming here on May 13!), John Allen Cameron, J P Cormier (coming here in October) and even stompin’ Tom. Dave has performed or written with all of them and many more.
There was no doubt in the minds of anyone in attendance last night as to why Dave Gunning has won so many awards. The audience was entertaned by stories from his recent trip to Kandahar Afganistan, where he entertained the troops, and tails about historic performances with Stompin Tom Connors.
Comments from the audience as he left were ”best I’ve ever seen”, “terrific show”.etc etc. The CD sales were very high giving some indication of just how much people enjoyed the music. So, if you have a chance to take in one of his shows you won’t be disappointed.
