“LATE EDITION is like spending a perfect evening passing the time with a good old friend and a few glasses of a fine single malt, discussing love, the latest news, and life in general” –Penguin Eggs Magazine

“David Francey rarely disappoints with his songwriting decisions, and LATE EDITION is no exception. It’s a corker.” –Les Siemieniuk, Calgary Folk Fest

“Francey has made a reputation for himself as one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers… [His songs] are small and beautifully crafted pieces of work that have made Francey both a folk festival favourite and something of a latter-day Canadian poet laureate.” –Greg Quill, Toronto Star

“A consummate craftsman…David Francey is one of the biggest stars of Canadian folk Music,” Words & Music ¬– SOCAN Magazine.

“One of Canada’s outstanding poets, songwriters, storytellers. That’s David Francey with a lovely little tribute to tonight.” –Ron MacLean, Hockey Night in Canada.
