From carpenter to songwriter - since leaving construction and recording his first album in 1999, Scottish-born Canadian David Francey is recognised as one of today’s finest singer-songwriters.
The First Set - Live From Folk Alley was recorded at Kent State Folk Festival and is an introduction to nine of David’s classic songs.
David released his first album Torn Screen Door in 1999. The release of his CD Right Of Passage earned him his third JUNO (Canada’s top music award) in less than five years, and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Singer (Contemporary), both in 2008. All of David’s nine albums have been released on his own Laker Music label.
In concert David Francey is a singer and a storyteller. His wry humour and astute observations, combined with his openhearted singing have earned him a loyal following. His straightforward songs tell honest stories of real people and places. Poetic perception and a keen eye for the matter are trademarks of the man and his music.
