Ken Dunn’s music "sneaks into you feet, heart, and soul."        - No Depression, The Roots Music Journal

Ken writes, performs, and records with the intention of promoting peace, social, and environmental justice. Alternatively light-hearted and pensive, contemporary, yet infused with tradition, this is music focused on positive human values, with diversity and inclusivity at its core.

This fragile respite from the virus continues to cultivate immense gratitude for the opportunity to once again play live music for you. Many thanks to my fellow compatriots Karen Morand and Gillian Nicola and the incredible Klages clan who's vision and hard work continue to bring live music to the engaging community of Desboro.

NEW LIVE @ HOME VIDEO: NAKED AND AMAZED 

After a life time living in the city, the old man retires to the country. There, surrounded by the sounds of the forest, he finds comfort and peace. Until one day, he is awoken by the sounds of chain saws and falling trees, and so, it begins...

NEW OFFICIAL VIDEO: ONE LAST QUESTION 

Well, Anthology, Volume 1 has "dropped", as we like to say in the biz! Many thanks to my Trespass Music team of Michelle Fortier and Larry Ahearn, as well as Nick Austin at Indie Pool for getting the job done at lightening speed.

At last count, there were 37 individuals involved in the production of this album - amazing musicians, engineers, and producers whose hard work and talent laid down the foundation for me to stand on.

And thank YOU, my small but dedicated band of die-hard supporters for hanging in there through thick and thin, through the lockouts and lockdowns, quarantines, and quarells that have befallen us all these past few years.

If you had just ONE LAST QUESTION, what would it be?

NEW OFFICIAL VIDEO: HOLD ON 

Here's a new video for Hold On - a track on my forthcoming album "Anthology, Volume 1" which will be released by Trespass Music on February 1, 2022.

The album is a retrospective anthology featuring the classical music sounds of my work with The Good Friday String Quartet, the  folk rock of Gypsy Starfish, duets with my partner Anna Green, as well as live solo guitar and dulcimer tracks.

This 20 track album is available as a digital download as well as CD on BandCamp and includes several previously unreleased, rare, and live recordings, as well as selections from many of my studio album releases over the past 25 years.

Remember, there is still a lot of beauty in this world, so Hold On everyone! 💕🎶🙏☮
