            Alison Rose is opening

The Linden Tree Coffeehouse will continue it 38th season of Bringing Joy to audiences on Saturday, April 22 at 7:30 pm.  Bringing back from Canada for his third visit is the amazing singer-songwriter Dave Gunning with Allison Rose opening.

With a career spanning over two decades, Dave Gunning is one of Canada’s folk music treasures – a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter who has earned multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Juno nomination and nine East Coast Music Awards for his well-crafted work. Dave has gained a reputation for being a great storyteller and engaging performer who has the profound ability to take listeners on a musical journey through his songs. Much of his material is about the underdogs, heroes, family, the heart and reflects the messaging of social justice and carrying about the world around us. The fruits of those labours are now vividly on display on his collection of songs, “Up Against The Sky”.

Dave’s  release, “Up Against The Sky” was recognized with four 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award nominations; eight East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Independent Music Video Award; and an International Folk Music Award nomination. His efforts have attracted strong media and radio airplay support, charting as the #1 most played Canadian and International ‘Artist’ & the #2 ‘Album’ on the US folk DJ Charts (October 2019). Dave has toured extensively across Canada, the USA, the UK, Ireland and Australia delighting audiences wherever he performs.

Dave has recently released ‘The Same Storm’, which features personal and historical songs written over the past two years including songs co-written with singer-songwriter Jim Dorie who passed away in 2015. – Roots Music Canada  Dave says these songs represent the highs and lows of what we all weathered together during the peak Covid years.  Covid gave him the time to spend with family,  finish previously started songs, and to create new ones for this recording.

Opening the show is Allison Rose, a winner of Linden Tree’s Winter Potpourri 2019.  She’s a Rhode Island native singer-songwriter who turns heads with her pure voice, heartful lyrics, and a solid serving of humor and sass.  She has several other music awards to her name including the 2021 and 2023 Motif Music Award Winner for Favorite Americana Singer-Songwriter.

Tickets for those attending are $20, (13 and under $10)  cash or check at the door.  Please reserve your seats by calling 781-246-2836. Masks recommended but not required.  Hot and cold beverages and wrapped snacks are currently available.
