 Hailing from Vancouver, BC, and heavily influenced by Forefathers of the genre like Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy and Mississippi Fred McDowell, David “Boxcar” Gates has evolved into one of Canada’s most renowned acoustic Piedmont, Ragtime & Delta Blues Guitar players. His astonishing playing stylesare drenched with bottleneck slide and alternate finger picking with a ragtime twist. David accompanies himself with the Bluesharp, mounted to a unique homemade Harmonica rack, constructed out of bicycleand lampshade parts. Only 31 years of age, David “Boxcar” Gates has been mesmerizing audiences across Canada and on various Festival stages in Europe.......... this Boy can play !!!` - Bruce Iglauer / President Alligator Records, Chicago
