Jordan Mackampa The Portland Arms, 7pm

Rising talent Jordan Mackampa has a fastidious approach to his art.

The 20-year-old acoustic singer-songwriter, who was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and lives in Coventry, doesn’t release anything until it is perfect and matches his own high standards.

A slice of folk, a dash of soul, Mackampa fuses a number of ingredients together to get a sound that is wonderfully fresh and new, and cites his influences as Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley. His debut EP, Physics, released in 2016, was warmly received.

Also performing is Dan Wilde, who has been performing around the country for five years, and folk singer Kerry Devine.

Tickets: £5.50. Box office: theportlandarms.co.uk.
