Along with richly-deserved peer respect, Dave Gunning has also earned a shelf full of music industry awards. That tally now stands at eight East Coast (Canada) Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus a 2012 Juno Award nomination in the Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year category. A few reviews of his outstanding work:
“Gunning’s musicality shone in the same way right from the first to the end of the show — always innovative guitar chording to accompany a voice that stood out like a finely-tuned old piano, perfect in pitch, delicate and weathered when called for, but strong and pure, refined in its years of melody flowing through it”. – The Guardian
“as compelling, as assured and attentive to every nuance of the writing process, as Lightfoot, Cockburn and Stan Rogers before him.”- Toronto Star
“Defining our lives, baring our souls…” – CBC New Brunswick
“It is that sense of intimacy through his writing, and his performances that makes Gunning an absolutely intriguing performer to watch and listen to”.- The Newfoundland Herald
“What makes Gunning so remarkable as an entertainer is his rare gift to be able to befriend the audience as a whole”. – The Guardian
