Francesco Il Mercante

Having made his debut in the alleys of Milan as a street artist, Francesco begins to travel in Europe with his one-man show.

Always very close to popular and traditional music, he composes and covers songs with mainly his voice, guitar and harmonica, in folk, country and blues styles.

In 2015, with his theatrical concert project, he won the Folkest prize and shared the bill with great artists like Angelo Branduardi and Finardi.

Thanks to the originality of his project, he performs in many events such as street arts festivals in Europe, but also at the Venice carnival.

With his latest creation of 2019, “L’art de se débrouiller”, he travels with his music to Quebec and Dubai.

In 2020, he created his latest album “l’émi-ingrate”, a folk-blues style project, which takes up the themes of dreams and the recycling of objects and feelings.

“The harmonica has accompanied me since the beginning of my musical career. It is always with me to enrich my music and make me discover new compositional possibilities in folk music!”.
