A Tribute To John Allen Cameron
Gunning Grabs Two National Folk Awards
Tue, Dec 6, 2011.
Congrats to Pictou County, NS stalwart Dave Gunning, who was one of the big winners at this year’s Canadian Folk Music Awards, held this past weekend in Toronto. Gunner, as he’s affectionately referred to by pals such as George Canyon, grabbed two trophies, and landed smack-dab on the national radar, where it’s well known he deserves to be recognized. His wins came for Traditional Singer of the Year, and (I always love this one) Emerging Artist of the Year. Given that he’s been emerging since 1997, perhaps it should be called, The Trophy We Should Have Given Him Last Millenium.
