David Francey

When you stop to imagine what the consummate folk singer-songwriter might sound like or what they might sing about – for most of us, the name David Francey automatically comes to mind. This Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter has become known as “one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers” (Toronto Star) because of the honest portraits of real people, places and events he captures so beautifully in his songs.  “Poetic perception and a keen eye for the heart of the matter are [his] trademarks…His songs and stories are a direct connection for audiences seeking depth and meaning in the day-to-day.” (Shelter Valley Folk Festival)

A multiple award-winner and Mission Folk favourite, Francey is simply a great singer and raconteur. On stage, his humour and astute observations combine with an openhearted singing style to make every performance the kind you relive with your friends for months.
