Windsor Folk kicks off its 2013/14 concert season with a returning favourite, three time Juno winner David Francey. Francey’s cross-Canada tour follows the release of his tenth recording “So Say We All”, since beginning his songwriting career in 1998 after decades of work as a manual labourer. His songs written from the heart of the working class are particularly resonant with Windsor audiences, as well as his songs celebrating his fascination with Great Lakes freight ships familiar along the Detroit River. His warm Scottish brogue originates from Ayershire, Scotland where he lived before moving to Canada at the age of twelve. Unlike many songwriters, Francey has likely spent more hours with a hammer in his hand than the standard issue guitar wielded by most troubadours. Hands in his pockets, he sings from the heart; accompanied by Mark Westberg on guitar and Chris Coole on banjo. Tickets are $23.00 and are available at the Mackenzie Hall Box Office (3227 Sandwich St.W. 519-255-7600) and at Casa Chavela (405 Pelissier, 519-254-6865). Tickets are $19.00 for Windsor Folk Members and Windsor Folk offers a three-ticket-discount for any concert in the series for $54.00, including the upcoming performance by Valdy on January 18th, 2014.
