Sam Dale Returns to His Home Town to Play at Cafe Portico

Sam Dale at Cafe Portico

Sam Dale, lead vocalist of The Feminists, treated us to a fantastic evening of acoustic music on Wednesday 16th November.

Based in Berlin, Sam is currently on tour with his band and we were delighted to host his solo gig in his home town. As soon as his set began we all knew this sold out event was going to be fantastic!

A hugely talented musician, Sam played a broad repertoire of his own work and covers with breathtaking skill. The venue was engulfed with the haunting tones of this incredible singer/songwriter whose influences were clearly the likes of Bob Dylan, Tim Buckley and Nick Drake.

A sold out homecoming gig, of sorts, which should make Lincoln proud to have bred such musical talent.

What do we aim for when we host events at Cafe Portico? A warm welcoming atmosphere, quality performances, fine wine and food and a cosy environment. Sam Dale’s gig once again proved that we can deliver all the above. Cafe Portico really is ‘Lincoln’s Little Secret’.
