Dave Goyetche
Jun 22 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Dave Goyetche is a well-known musical entity around Nova Scotia. In fact, on one night you may see him on his acoustic guitar in a one-man show or with his friend, Rob Filek, on percussion. Then on the next night he could be part of a rollicking group known as Blueberry Grunt, firing off Irish and maritime favorites as if he was part of a very large kitchen party. This well-rounded musical journey began at the age of four and he began playing seriously since the age of seven, balanced with doses of country music, rock n’ roll, Motown soul and funk How did he get so balanced in musical tastes? It began with his father who dad led bands in the 50’s to 70’s. The rehearsal hall was very close, the basement in the family home. Out of this immersion in various musical forms Dave became a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitars, bass, drums, piano, and more recently the Dobro,lap steel and mandolin.

Dave has been performing in one form or another, throughout the Maritimes for close to 40 years. Dave is someone we have known since way back; actually since our days at Prince Andrew High School in Dartmouth in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Dave loves to entertain, playing multiple instruments including, bass, guitar, dobro, lap steel, mandolin and piano. davegoyetche-150x256
