Many thanks to Gerry Goodfriend, host of Folk Directions at CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal (every Thursday morning 9-11 am ET on CKUT and the web) for these three archived shows from May 2020. This first episode from May 7 features music by Gretchen Peters, Bill Garrett & Sue Lothrup, Rose Cousins, Stan Rogers, Pharis & Jason Romero, along with yours truly, and many others.
Tempered by experience and fueled by passion, Ken Dunn’s music "sneaks into you feet, heart, and soul." - No Depression
Distilling disparate life experiences into a proficient set of musical skills, Ken's unique songs and stories take audiences on a healing journey of love and self-discovery. With decades of touring and nine critically acclaimed albums to his credit, 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.

I was looking forward to performing at this wonderful venue, a majestic stone building in suburban Ewing, NJ which has stood for 150 years as a central landmark in the township. The 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing, as it is now known, is still a beautiful gathering place, and is currently being maintained and cared for by Preservation New Jersey (PNJ). The virus had other plans. Hoping to do an online show instead.

Unfortunately, due to the continued Canada-U.S. border closure due to Covid-19, I regretfully have to cancel this show.
A cool bar with a mellow ambiance & nightly live music, plus bottles of wine & craft beer to go, The Listing Loon is where I would have been spreading my musical message of love and peace. When it re-opens, please support this awesome venue for the "earliest show in Northside" Cincinnati!
