He is known as one of Canada's hardest working and most prolific blues guitar virtuosos and David Gogo will be showcasing his blistering guitar licks and soulful vocals at the Errington Hall May 10.

He has earned four Juno nominations, the 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year, the CBC Saturday Night Blues' Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year.

He has played on stage with Johnny Winter, Otis Rush, Albert Collins and Bo Diddley and has opened for ZZ Top, The Tragicially Hip. In March 2013 he performed as the supporting act for blues legend B.B. King for the third time in his career.
