The Cowichan Folk Guild has its next coffeehouse on Saturday, April 9, featuring Scottish-born folk singer David Francey.

Francey moved to Canada from Scotland when he was 12 years old and has worked across the country in railyards, construction sites and the Yukon bush, all while writing poetry and setting it to music.

“A truly authentic folk singer, he is a documentarian of the working person who never imagined earning a living from his music. But when he was in his 40s, his wife encouraged him to share his songs and sing in public. And the rest, as they say, is history,” reads a CFG press release.

The coffeehouse takes place at the Duncan United Church located at 246 Ingram St. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m. There will not be an open stage for this coffeehouse. Admission is $10 or $5 for CFG members. For more about Francey visit www.davidfrancey.com.
