Folk singer-songwriter Marika Hackman is set to give a show in Cambridge.
As part of her largest headline tour to date, she will stop by The Portland Arms on Tuesday, April 14.
Following the release of her debut album We Slept At Last, Hackman returns with new single Ophelia, set for release on April 27.
Drawing inspiration from Hamlet, Ophelia sees her narrating a tragic story of spurned love, delivering a clear indication of her blossoming confidence as a songwriter and talent as a lyricist.
From the tangled folk roots of That Iron Taste through to the swarming psychedelia of Sugar Blind and Deaf Heat, there’s a distinct sense of adventure to her songwriting.
