Who’s our headliner?
Dilettante is the brain-child of longtime BC Camplight member Francesca Pidgeon. Live shows are a genre-phobic loop-fest, featuring everything from fuzzy guitar licks to 5-part saxophone harmonies.
Recently Dilettante have sold out headline shows in Manchester, Leeds, Halifax, London, Hull and Liverpool. They have supported the likes of Self Esteem, Caribou, Graham Coxon (Blur) and Philip Selway (Radiohead) plus festival appearances at Kendal Calling, Live at Leeds, Manchester Jazz Festival, Focus Wales and The Great Escape. Their debut album ‘Tantrum’ was released in October 2022.
“A white-knuckle ride of gloriously tuneful 20-something angst. A jazzy, brassy paean to modern anxiety. (Dilettante) is a consummate multi-instrumentalist, making brilliantly extravagant art-pop soap operas.” – Bob Fischer, Electronic Sound Magazine
“The freshest pop aficionado gracing the circuit.” – Cameron Wright, NARC Magazine
“Some of the most beautiful and interesting art rock/pop instrumentation I’ve ever heard accompanied by stunning vocal harmonies front to back. Please give this a listen!” – Miles Hadley, International Music Desk
“Dilettante’s set is an exceptional performance piece, an unreal amount of live layering. Francesca spits vocals with deft pronunciation; this level of art wouldn’t work with sunshine and smiles. Exceptional.” – Damian Robinson, NARC Magazine
For fans of St Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, Dirty Projectors and Fiona Apple.
+ support from Skydaddy (London), Beb (Leeds), & the wonderful local Hebden Bridge act Sweet Goose
