With sell-out shows across the Maritimes, Riverview Arts Centre is delighted to present Dave Gunning and J.P. Cormier, just in time to celebrate the holidays with you.

And there couldn’t be a better time to discover these two award winning singers and songwriters, performing music that warms your heart and brings back many favourite special songs and memories.

This duo goes back more than two decades when Gunning had a fiddle player drop out of a show at the last minute. “He hired me for a gig when I was just back from Nashville, nobody knew me here,” says Cormier.

Since then they’ve been two of the busiest solo musicians in the country. Since then they’ve played together and written together whenever they could, coming up with songs that graced all their projects and over the years showered them with awards and nominations on the East Coast and nationally. It was impossible to schedule time to make a full album and properly tour it. But that all changed three years ago when Cormier moved just down the road from Gunning in Nova Scotia. In 2019 they finally achieved that dream with their first album, entitled simply ‘Two’. What else?

“We love singing together, we love playing guitar together, it just works,” says Gunning

And you will agree. Two is as real as it gets. Two songwriters, interpreters, guitar players, and singers at their peak. There couldn’t be a better time to discover Gunning & Cormier, and the power of Two. This is definitely a time when two is better, lots better, than one. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a great partnership, and welcome in the merriest season.

This exciting show is scheduled for Friday, December 17 at 7.30 pm

Tickets: $35
