Emily Portman’s third album Coracle has been gathering momentum since its release in June 2015, along with a wave of glowing reviews. Coracle was named a ‘Best Album of 2015’ by the Telegraph and has received airplay from the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Late Junction, with a BBC live session in store for Mark Radcliffe’s Folk Show.
In March 2017 Emily Portman will be touring with The Coracle Band, a stellar cast of musicians who featured on the studio album, now brought together to recreate Coracle in an ambitious live show. Joining Emily’s celebrated and longstanding collaborators Lucy Farrell (viola, saw, voice) and Rachel Newton (harp and voice), The Coracle Band features 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). Sought-after sound engineer Andy Bell  (Bellowhead, Martin Simpson, Nancy Kerr) who produced and engineered Coracle, will be providing live sound on the road for The Coracle Band, enhancing the experience for audiences, whatever the space.
Together The Coracle Band will realise the full breadth and beauty of Emily’s finest work to date. Percussion, vibes, pedal steel, electric harp and soaring strings combine with a veritable choir of voices. This will be an unmissable new act for 2017!
