Dan Kenning

For over twenty years, Dan Kenning’s rich voice and robust stage presence were an important part of Fraser Union. He retired from singing with the group in December, 2008, but his voice continues to be heard on Fraser Union’s four CDs.

Dan brings his strong convictions and his experience as an elementary school teacher to his singing. Many a classroom kid learned “Drill Ye Tarriers,” “Salmon Circle,” Kettle Valley Line,” and other BC songs from Dan. But his music is also informed by his experiences as a prospector and fisher, his involvement in workplace health and safety issues, and his family connections to the coal mines of Vancouver Island.
