David Francey with Craig Werth, and Amelia Curran
Scottish-born Canadian David Francey is recognized as one of today's finest singer-songwriters
Francey's experiences in working-class life strongly influences his music. Other musical themes include admiration of the natural beauty of the Canadian landscape, and traditional folk themes of love and loss.
His 2009 album Seaway is a collaboration with Mike Ford of Moxy Früvous. It is a collection of songs inspired by their two-week voyage on M.S. Algoville, a 750-foot bulk carrier of the Algoma Central Laker fleet. They witnessed firsthand life onboard a working vessel as they sailed from Montreal to Thunder Bay and back along the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the majestic inland sea of the Great Lakes.
Francey has been awarded three Junos and the 2007 SOCAN Folk Music Award, which is given to the member whose works achieved the year's highest number of performances in domestic radio, play audio and concerts.

Amelia Curran is a highly-regarded performer and songwriter from eastern Canada.
Curran started playing guitar and writing songs as a teenager and eventually dropped out of university in order to busk on the streets of her native St. John's, Newfoundland. Nearly a decade ago, she left home and settled in the mainland city of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In addition to being a musician, she is also a playwright and actor, and has had her plays performed in fringe festivals.
Curran has been nominated for several East Coast Music Awards, and earlier this year she won the Juno award for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year (Solo) for her latest release, Hunter, Hunter.
"Amelia Curran could very well be a poet, as her lyrical perception borders on unmasked vulnerability and contemplative wistfulness." - Chart Magazine
