Magnificent Intentions Music Festival


Jacqueline Pie Francis

Jacqueline (known as Pie to her friends) holds an M.A. in Creative Writing from New York University, and is likely to be found thinking, musing, writing, singing, cooking, baking, bumping into things, or contorting her face. A rare and multi-faceted talent, her stage presence is compelling, charming, and funny. She has a knack for storytelling, an expressive face, and is known for her off-kilter choice in cover songs. Jacqueline has been a featured performer at venues like the Cutting Room, Bitter End, and Club Passim. She took a two-year hiatus to take care of her mother, who was diagnosed with ALS. After her mother’s passing, she returned to music. This Fall 2015, she will release her first full-length, fully-produced album, The Sea. She also writes a blog about Alfred Hitchcock Presents, because she is very dorky and her friend Tim dared her to.


It is sometimes called the City of Magnificent Distances, but it might with greater propriety be termed the City of Magnificent Intentions.
— Charles Dickens
