Francey wins a JUNO for Right of Passage!

Calgary, April 5th 2008 – David Francey won his third JUNO in the Roots and Traditional – Solo category. He is absolutely thrilled to win the award, it is every bit as exciting as receiving his first JUNO for Far End of Summer. This honour means a great deal to David as this category is judged by his peers. In just six years David has had 4 JUNO nominations and won 3 JUNOs! Wow!

If you’d like to hear David’s acceptance speech just watch this video taken by Beth (who was also very pleased to be at the ceremonies in Calgary!)

David took part in the 5th annual JUNO cup while he was in Calgary playing on the NHL team as their goalie – also a thrill!

Last, but not least, David was part of the first ever presentation of classical music at JUNOfest. David was honoured to narrate for JUNO nominee, cellist Matt Haimovitz for his performance of “After Reading Shakespear”

  1. CONGRATULATIONS! We are thrilled for your recognition and success! We knew you were a force to be reckoned with from our first introduction at the Kennebunk Coffee House many, many years ago!
    Still dancing in the kitchen, humming all day, and grooving in the car to all of your music. Looking forward to your next live performance in Maine!
    With all best wishes,
    The Andrews Family

    Well deserved wonderful news — but not at all surprising — people who play Yellowknife with the Gumboots always go on to win Junos!
