New David Francey CD!

David and Mike at St. Lambert Locks

David and good friend Mike Ford (of Moxy Fruvous fame) recorded a lively selection of songs inspired by their trip on the Saint Lawrence Seaway aboard the M.V. Algoville.

“In late May of 2005 we were granted the incredible opportunity to spend two weeks aboard the MV Algoville. The captain and crew of this 750-foot bulk carrier of the Algoma Central Laker fleet allowed us to witness life onboard first-hand. We sailed from Montreal to Thunder Bay and back along the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the majestic inland sea of the Great Lakes. We are indebted to Algoma Central Marine and all those on board the Algoville, who made this trip possible. It is to that hard-working crew that we dedicate these songs.” ~ David Francey and Mike Ford ~introducton to “SEAWAY”

SEAWAY is now available on the Laker Music label at www.davidfrancey.com
