David Gossage is one of Montreal’s most respected and experienced musicians. Multi-instrumentalist David switches from flute to guitar, whistles and harmonica with ease and in virtually all styles of music. As a composer and arranger David has worked in theater, film and poetry. He has worked extensively as an arranger at the National Film Board and his most recent arrangements for the animated short When the Day Breaks won a Gemini, the jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and was nominated for an Oscar. His flute can also be heard on the Gemini winning Fast Runner soundtrack.
In Celtic music along with world renown fiddler Johnny Cunningham he produced the Juno nominated “Night Visions” album by Orealis. David currently tours with his band Dave Gossage and the Celtic Mindwarp as well as the Juno award winning Paperboys. The band has also opened up for the Waterboys, the Pogues, Runrig, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, to name a few and shared the stage with the Tannahill Weavers, Solas, The Oyster Band and Great Big Sea who opened for them regularly before becoming well known. He has played in North American and all over Europe. There is no doubt as a Celtic/Jazz flute player David has made his mark. His virtuosity continues to marvel the crowds he plays for on the festival circuit both in Europe and North America, as well as in the pubs and jazz clubs of Montreal.
