Award-Winning Folk Artist Performs for
Students at South Crosby Public School

September 25, 2017 (Elgin, Ontario) – Award-winning Canadian folk artist Dave Gunning shared his reflections on East Coast life with 200 students at South Crosby Public School on Friday. 

During a morning concert, students sang along to original tunes penned by the 44-year-old artist from Lyons Brook, Nova Scotia. Friday’s performance centred on the heritage of the Maritimes, with songs such as Coal from the Train. These Hands spoke of the sense of possibility in life, while others tunes such as A Game Goin’ On were a nod to Canada’s love for hockey.

The concert was part of the Ontario Festival of Small Halls and was the second stop for Gunning in as many days in Leeds-Grenville, having played St. Andrew’s United Church Hall in Toledo the night before.
