WIN dave's cd

Christmas 2015

We're so thrilled to tell you - Pictou County, Nova Scotia's own Dave Gunning will be performing at this year's Boston Tree Lighting - December 3rd in Boston Common.

"For decades, Nova Scotia has given a Christmas tree to the people of the City of Boston in gratitude for their assistance and support following the Halifax Explosion in 1917.

This tradition of giving is a way for Nova Scotia to express sincere thanks for the help they provided during a difficult time. This year’s tree was donated by a Nova Scotian who ran the 100th Boston Marathon.

Bill and Andrea MacEachern of Lorne, Pictou County, NS, are donating their 15 metre (49 feet) white spruce that is about 72 years old. It will take centre stage of a live broadcast on Thursday, December 3rd beginning at 8pm Atlantic." source
