For tickets, see the Cambridge Junction Website.

Show starts at 8pm, aiming for a 10.30pm finish. Doors open from 7pm.

SAM LEWIS is a country-soul artist based in Nashville, Tennessee. With a rich soulful vocal, laid-back and comforting stage presence, and sharp eye for melody, he is an irresistable performer. His blues-flavoured debut album, ‘Waiting on you’, received a top review from Mojo and featured in the Telegraph’s list of top country albums from 2015. His latest work, 2018’s Loversity, is a richly-produced album, positively dripping with soul and smooth grooves.

“There’s so much soul pouring out of this guy’s pores you could bathe in it. It’s like hearing Al Green for the first time.”
-Grant Britt, No Depression

Cambridge-based DAN WILDE is a songwriter who has built a name for himself with observant, wittily crafted songs, engaging story-telling and charismatic presence, and intricate guitar work. His three studio albums show the development of an extraordinary talent, with his fourth album in the works.

Songs & Stories is organised, promoted and hosted by Cambridge-based poet JOSEPH J CLARK. Known for his alcohol-themed poems, Joseph has performed at Cambridge Folk Festival, Brighton Fringe, and Strawberry Fair.

"Clark commands attention from the get-go... an eloquent, talented performer and orator with some of his work demanding dynamic, linguistic gymnastics"
