Tunes at Noon is back for its 12th year! Tunes at Noon is a FREE summer concert series on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 pm in Grand Parade.
Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Dave Carroll is a Canadian songwriter, author, social media pioneer and the creator of a one-in-a-billion story, United Breaks Guitars. He began his music career with his brother Don in the ECMA award winning band Sons of Maxwell and has also been enjoying success as a solo artist since 2008. He released his debut solo album Perfect Blue in 2008 and a second solo album in 2012, Raincoat in Vegas and is set to release a new solo album in 2019.
Dave’s $150 YouTube music video about his broken guitar and the airline that failed to right their wrong, changed the world and became “one of the most important videos in Google’s history.” It empowered consumers and sent ripples across the global business community after it dropped United Airlines stock by $150 million in market value. Today, it endures as a case study within a wide and diverse range of organizations and at reputable universities such as Harvard and Oxford. Dave Carroll’s infectious ability to connect with audiences has generated invitations to perform in over 30 countries. His music, down-to-earth sense of humour and insightful experience have made Dave Carroll a masterful teller of stories that unite, motivate and start movements.
