Nova Scotia’s own Dave Gunning recently won two Canadian Folk Music Awards in Toronto awards earlier this month. It’s not too often singers from our small province is recognized in the big city of Toronto – so this is something to celebrate. If you can’t get your fix of Christmas music around the holidays, you can catch this award winning Nova Scotian for a holiday tour complete with the classic Christmas carols and a few new ones as well.
I’ve had the chance to listen to his new Christmas Album, Christmas Too and it is a mix of good ‘ole Nova Scotia folk hits classic Christmas carols. The CD is played often throughout my home, it’s easy to sing along with and the classics and the others are toe tapping worthy.
The CD includes:
- Angels We Have Heard on High
- Christmas Back Home Again
- Do You Hear What I Hear
- Joy To The World
- In The Bleak Mid Winter
- Winter Wonderland
- Merry Christmas Lonely Cowboy
- The Cheery Tree Christmas Carol
- O Christmas Tree
- Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
- Old Toy Trains
