Description

Featuring:
Emily Portman vocals, concertina, banjo
Lucy Farrell vocal, viola, violin, saw
Rachel Newton vocals, harp

Inspired by the darker underbelly of folklore and balladry, singer, songwriter and concertina player Emily Portman weaves harmony-rich narratives of both the magical and the monstrous. With two 2010 BBC Folk Award nominations, she is fast gaining a reputation for her song-writing talent and lark-like voice.

Emily first cut her teeth on the folk scene with harmony trio The Devil’s Interval, annually tours with Waterson:Carthy, and has commendations from a host of folk luminaries. Emily’s debut solo album The Glamoury has been received with overwhelming critical acclaim
