I’ve never heard of Canadian folk singer David Francey before yesterday but apparently he has heard of my boyhood hometown of Ashtabula, as he sings about it in this lovely song of his.

I also learned yesterday that his tour will bring him to my Southern Pennsylvania manhood hometown in October. How cool is that?
