***** "Coracle is a triumph... Delicate as a spider’s web, yet tough as memory, this is a rich and remarkable record" R2 MAGAZINE
Emily Portman’s third album Coracle has been gathering momentum since its release in June, along with a wave of glowing reviews. Coracle was recently 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.
Emily Portman performs 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. 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.
Drinks are permitted in the theatre during this laid-back cabaret-style event.
***** "Coracle is, without doubt, one of the folk albums of the year" SONGLINES
