First, a big thank you to those who attended the Cosy Sheridan show here Saturday. We had a great turnout for a great singer/songwriter who gave us all a great performance. All in all, a great night. It was such a pleasure to hear Cosy’s funny, moving and, at times, politically biting commentary and her amazing guitar playing. Backed up by her “sweetie” Charley, on base and back-up vocals, she put on one hell of a show.
And speaking of a “hell of a show,” those of you who were here 2 years ago for the fantastic David Francey show we hosted in Cheryl’s Garden here at the Doverlaff Masion, know what an amazing show David and Mark gave us. Well, looks like they are about to give it to us again.
Monday, May 5 starting at 7 pm, we will host them again, probably in the Tiki Room (as we cannot count on sunny weather in May.) We know many of you already
know about David Francey, multiple Juno award winner (the Canadian version of the Grammy.) David’s moving songs relate the real stories of people he has known, places he has seen and his experiences. A true Everyman’s songwriter with a Canadian-Scottish accent that is totally charming and lends a gritty realism to his songs. David, if you cannot tell, is one of our all-time favorite songwriters and it is a travesty that more people do not know the man and his music.
Lets try to help correct that by having you here on Monday, May 5 at 7 pm for this show. Dan will do a short opening set and David and Mark will start by 0730. The suggested donation for this show will be $20 per seat. As usual we will provide some snacks, coffee, tea and some soft drinks for free. We will also have beer and wine available and we suggest a $2 donation for those.
If you do not know David’s music, check out some of the videos on YouTube:
We are sure these tunes, and others you can find on line, will convince you that you must see David Francey. Last time he was here in the back yard, we had 80 people. Since we can only seat 50 inside, be sure to get your advance suggested donation of $20 per seat to us quickly to guarantee your seat. As always, we prefer cash for “at the door” donations. Make checks out to Dan Dover with David Francey in the memo line and send them to Dan Dover, 7326 SE Woodward St. PDX, 97206. You can reach me at 503.730.3189 if you have questions.
We know you will love this show and we so look forward to sharing the evening with you.
As our friends Spud and Rich say, The Music Is Magic. Come share some magic with us,
Cheryl and Dan
