David “Boxcar” Gates’ Piedmont Blues stylings are drenched with bottleneck slide and alternate fingerpicking. Heavily influenced by the Blues Forefathers Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy and Mississippi Fred Mcdowell with a ragtime twist, he accompanies himself on the Bluesharp, mounted to a unique, homemade harmonica rack, constructed out of bicycle and lampshade parts.

This astonishing Acoustic Ragtime Delta Blues Guitar talent has been dubbed an up and coming new Canadian Blues Music shooting star, as he has been mesmerizing audiences across Canada and Europe.

Already in his young career, David “Boxcar” Gates is being praised by press and media representatives, as well as industry professionals the likes of Bruce Iglauer ( Alligator Records ), who commented on David’s first and very raw recordings: “……this Boy can play !!! “
