Forty Tenth Promotions Presents…
Sunday 3rd March
Launched in 2005 by Irish singer Lorraine Reilly and Bristolian pianist Jeremy Millington, The Portraits’ warm upbeat sound which mixes folk with music theatre, jazz and classical styles has secured the band a big following in the UK and France. As well as being crowned Best International Artist 2011 by US station Radio Crystal Blue, The Portraits released a song, Liberty, for Burma’s democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, which was presented to her in person.
From their roots playing as an acoustic duo (piano, guitar, 2 voices) the Portraits have exploded into an energetic, sparkling full band, adding violin, cello, bodhran, upright bass and third vocalist into the mix, and their live performances leave audiences moved to laughter and tears in equal measure.
