PICTOU – The Scottish-Canadian sounds of David Francey will be filling the deCoste Centre on Nov. 28 when he brings his “So Say We All” tour to the county.

David Francey

Francey was born in Scotland and made Canada his home when he was 12. Since then, he has become known as “one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers,” according to the Toronto Star.

For decades, he worked across Canada in rail yards, construction sites, and in the Yukon bush, all the while writing poetry, setting it to melodies in his head and singing it to himself as he worked.

A truly authentic folk singer, his first album “Torn Screen Door” came out in 1999 and was a hit. Since then, he has released 10 albums, and won three Juno Awardsand the prestigious SOCAN Folk Music Award.

He also took home the Grand Prize in both the International Acoustic Music Award and in the Folk category for the John Lennon Songwriting Award.

In concert, David is a singer and a storyteller. His wry humour and astute observations combined with his openhearted singing style have earned him a loyal following.

Tickets for David Francey are on sale at the deCoste Centre box office and will be available at the door. Prices range from $15 for students to $28 for adults.

Call 1-800-353-5338 or 485-8848 for information. He takes the stage at 7 p.m.
