Francesca Pidgeon is primarily a musician and makes her living playing cover sets in bars. However, her real creative interests are sprawling and incohesive, tending to end up a part of her main creative output – her band Kumiko.
Francesca writes, records, orchestrates, produces and performs the music for this project, and also creates any artwork, videos or handmade CDs that they release.
She also writes prose and irate non-fiction work, composes for film, radio and TV and is currently co-writing a folk opera. She will soon be heading up the Manchester contingent of ‘Girls That Gig,’ which is an organisation that focuses on supporting women in music.
Francesca Pidgeon has two slots at the Sherburn in Elmet Craft and Food Festival and will be performing on Saturday 25th August at 12:00 pm and again at 2:00 pm. Check out our entertainment homepage for a full list of all the acts that will be performing over the August bank holiday weekend.
