Will Mackie-Jenkins, originally from Warrenton, is a Chicago-based singer-songwriter.

Since moving to Chicago four years ago, Will has released an EP, titled “Cherries in Bloom,” and toured throughout the Midwest and East Coast. He couldn’t be more excited to be performing at Drum & Strum—where he bought his first guitar more than 12 years ago. Bess Putnam. or better known as the Blue Mountain Songbird will be returning to the Listening Room this time featuring special guests, Matt Metz and Patrick Callahan. Listeners will be treated an evening of music featuring heartfelt songs and original compositions. Seating is limited and advance ticket purchase is highly recommended.
