Gunning is touring in support of his new album “Lift.” Dave 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 (Kingsville Folk Music Festival) & The Sun Parlour Players Community Theatre (The Bank Theatre.)More concerts are planned for the 2016 concert series and will be announced at a later date.
