The success of Gogo’s latest album Vicksburg Call continues with him being nominated for a 2016 Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Artist Of The Year. This follows a Juno nomination earlier in the year.
David Gogo is one of Canada’s hardest working blues-rock guitarists, and he has a string of remarkable accomplishments to show for it. Gogo has garnered four JUNO Nominations, the Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, the 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year, and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year. Over the years, he has been asked to open tours for George Thorogood, Little Feat and ZZ Top and has joined BB King, Bo Diddley, Albert Collins, and numerous others on stage – most recently touring across Canada with Johnny Winter.
