David Francey is a Scottish-born carpenter-turned-songwriter, who has become known as “one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers” (Toronto Star). Born in Ayrshire, Scotland to parents who were factory workers, he moved to Canada when he was twelve. For decades, he worked in rail yards, construction sites, and the Yukon bush, all the while writing poetry, setting it to melodies in his head and singing it to himself as he worked.
