Emily Portman & The Coracle Band

Emily Portman (Best Original Song, BBC Radio Two Folk Award) presents her third album Coracle with The Coracle Band, a stellar cast of musicians who together to create an ambitious live show.

Recently named 'Best Album of 2015' by The Telegraph, Emily’s music will be brought to the stage with longstanding collaborators Lucy Farrell (viola, saw, voice) and Rachel Newton (harp and voice). Joining them is The Coracle Band featuring virtuosic string player Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead, BBC Folk Musician of the Year 2015) guitarist M G Boulter (Lucky Strikes) and classical percussionist Toby Kearney (2006 BBC Young Musician of the Year).

With percussion, vibes, pedal steel, electric harp and soaring strings combined with a veritable choir of voices, these musicians will realise the full breadth and beauty of Emily Portman’s finest work to date.
