The Vernon Folk Roots Music Society is excited to present David Francey. David Francey is a Scottish-born carpenter-turned-songwriter, who has become known as “one of Canada's most revered folk poets and singers” (Toronto Star).
David Francey is a Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter. A truly authentic folk singer, David is a documentarian of the working person who never imagined earning a living from his music. But when he was in his 40s, his wife, artist Beth Girdler, encouraged him to share his songs and sing in public. The reaction was instant. His first album “Torn Screen Door” came out in 1999 and was a hit in Canada. Since then, he has released eleven albums, won three Juno Awards and has had his songs covered by such artists as The Del McCoury Band, The Rankin Family, James Keelaghan and Tracy Grammer.
