David Francis's headshot

I am a songwriter and storyteller. I've written songs for six albums and for music theatre and stage shows. I've written two storytelling stage shows, Red Earth and Revival!, based on family history.

I have done storytelling for primary age children in Scots, and have appeared at the Scottish Storytelling Forum's Cafe Voices and Guid Crack nights, at the Scottish International Storytelling Festival and Tradfest.

One of my interests is in taking old ballads and re-presenting the characters and narrative in contemporary situations.
