Ken Dunn

"Highly evocative and intriguing" (fRoots, UK), the music of Ken Dunn offers "refreshing insight into human complexities" (Festival of Friends, Hamilton). Combining an adept finger style acoustic guitar technique with "strong, distinctive vocals” (R2, Dublin), Ken's "brilliant songwriting" (Hemifran, Sweden) delivers a strong, positive message directly to the soul of the listener.

When performing with partner Anna Green, their beautiful vocal harmonies enhance the emotional depth and character of live performances. In addition, Ken's sound takes on a distinctive folk and country rock vibe when performing with members of his band, Gypsy Starfish.

Ken has performed at hundreds of venues over the past 30 years, across Canada, the U.S., and Central America, sharing the bill with folk and roots icons as diverse as Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie P. Bennett, Valdy, and Garnet Rogers. His passion for social and environmental justice is also evident in the many benefit concerts he performs.

Ken has released 7 albums featuring some of Canada's finest studio musicians. His most recent offering, "Wondrous Beauty" was released to radio worldwide by Trespass Music on September 1, 2017.
