Event Notes


As he has for 25 years now, David Francey draws listeners into the emotional power of his stories using nothing but his incisive way with language, his ear for a catchy melody, and his deep and obvious empathy for people who are struggling - no fancy production or orchestration required.

A truly authentic folk singer, David Francey 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 thirteen albums, won three Juno Awards and has had his songs covered by a wide range of artists.
