David Francey

Francey’s words of eloquence coming to the Heriot Bay Inn

Francey is a singer and a storyteller

Three time Juno Award winner David Francey is bringing his “words of eloquence, beauty and charm, hung on a jewel of a voice” to Quadra Island, performing in Herons at the Heriot Bay Inn.

In concert, Francey is a singer and a storyteller. His wry humour and astute observations combined with his open-hearted singing style have earned him a loyal following as well as an impressive list of musical awards.

From carpenter to songwriter: since his first recording in 1999 (Torn Screen Door), David Francey is now recognized as one of today’s finest singer-songwriters. Francey’s most recent album, Late Edition, is his ninth. He started in the music business quite late, not releasing his first album till he was in his 40’s.

Francey’s straightforward songs tell honest stories of real people and real places. Poetic perception and a keen eye for the heart of the matter are trademarks of the man and his music.

Francey will be at the Heriot Bay Inn Thursday Nov. 3, and the Port Hardy Civic Centre Nov. 5.

Tickets for the Quadra Island event are  $45 and include a three-course dinner. Seats are by reservation, call 250-285-3322 for info.

“Francey has made a reputation for himself as one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers. [His songs] are small and beautifully crafted pieces of work that have made Francey both a folk festival favourite and something of a latter-day Canadian poet laureate,” Greg Quill of the Toronto Star said.
