Blenders is happy to announce the performance of David Francey on Thursday, March 24th. The Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter, has become known as one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers.
Francey moved to Canada as a young pre-teen, and had spent decades working across Canada in rail yards, constructions sites and in the Yukon bush. During his long days at work he would write poetry and set it to melodies in his head, he would then pass his time by singing to himself while he worked.
A truly authentic folk singer, Francey is a documentarian of the working person who never imagined earning a living from his music. Once he was in his 40s, his wife persuaded him to share his songs and sing in public, the reaction was instant, and from there he took off. His first album Torn Screen Door was released in 1999, and was an immediate hit in Canada. Since then David Francey has released ten albums and has won 3 Juno Awards.
In concert Francey is a singer and storyteller; his songs are an impeccable retelling of his past, and his life as a blue collared worker. His wry humour and astute observations combined with his openhearted singing style have earned him a loyal following.
David Francey’s poetic-folk presence is captivating, and is an experience you surly will not what to miss. Join us on March 24th at the Lyric Theatre, Swift Current, SK. Doors will open at 7:30pm and the show will begin at 8:30pm. Tickets are $30 and are available at Pharmasave.
