Emily Portman is a singer, writer and concertina player hailed as one of the new British folk scene’s most beguiling presences (Uncut). Her ability to conjure darkly surreal netherworlds where folklore and myth collide with urban landscapes has earned her high praise from critics, with her third album Coracle receiving a wave of glowing reviews since its release in June 2015. Tonight Emily performs with The Coracle Band, a stellar cast of musicians including Folk Musician of the Year 2015, Bellowhead’s Sam Sweeney and MG Boulter of the Lucky Strikes.
In association with the Fo’c’sle Folk Club.
