Emily Portman Trio

Portman recasts antique folk and myth into stunning shapes… Remarkable and original

– The Observer

EMILY PORTMAN is a singer, songwriter and concertina player hailed as "one of the new British folk scene's most beguiling presences" (UNCUT)

Emily is the 2013 holder of the BBC Radio Two Folk Award for Best Original Song; an accolade which reflects her power to conjure darkly surreal netherworlds where folklore and myth collide with urban landscapes.

She was also nominated for Folk Singer of the Year in the 2016 BBC Folk Awards. Her 2015 album Coracle picked up high accolades: described as 'a marvellous, original work' by the Observer, and received airplay by Jarvis Cocker on 6 Music, with repeated play by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3's Late Junction. 

With her debut fairytale-inspired album ‘The Glamoury’ also gaining her critical acclaim and two BBC Folk Award nominations, Emily is fast becoming a luminary of the UK folk scene, sharing stages with folk legends including Martin Simpson and Waterson:Carthy. She has received widespread international radio-play, performed live sessions for BBC Radio 2 and 6,  reached mojo’s top ten album lists and tours extensively.

Emily performs live with the Emily Portman Trio, alongside the talented musicians  Lucy Farrell (voice,viola and saw) and Rachel Newton (voice, harp and fiddle) who have become known for their “inventive arrangements using twinkling harp, brooding strings and chiming vocal parts” (Observer). Lucy and Rachel are highly sought-after soloists in their own right and together they beguile audiences throughout Europe. The Emily Portman Trio count prestigious venues including London’s Barbican and The Queen Elizabeth Hall among their stamping grounds, not to mention a string of renowned Festivals from Cambridge to Celtic Connections.

2014 saw the release of a new collaborative traditional song band The Furrow Collective, whihc also features Farrell and Newton. Their debut album was released in February to overwhelming critical acclaim and described by Mojo as ‘a mouthwatering collaboration’.
