Popular East Coast singer-songwriter Dave Gunning will be playing the Trailside Music Cafe' & Inn in Mount Stewart on Oct. 18-19 at 8 p.m.
There are stories that wash over like the tide. Then there are stories that grab people by the heart.
Gunning has made a point of finding the latter and wrapping them up in song since he broke onto the East Coast music scene 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 flavors of Irish, Scottish, folk and country musical styles, Gunning performs music that fills the senses and touches the soul.
Tickets are available at www.trailside.ca, Back Alley Music or call 902-394-3626. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with music starting at 8 p.m.
