Thanks to everyone who joined us in celebrating the launch of Coracle on tour! Whilst we were on the road, photographer Rob Bridge came along to our gig at The Musician, Leicester. He took some photos and we had a chat over pizza - you can read the resulting Folk Radio UK interview HERE (munching omitted).
The Morning Star have given Coracle a great review, saying 'Fans of Portman should get to the front of the queue to check out her third album Coracle'. So for those of you who need a bit of persuading you can read the full review HERE ! And more good news on the Coracle front: a five star review has just arrived in the latest issue of Songlines who say 'Coracle is without doubt one of the folk albums of the year'. Songlines have also included 'Darkening Bell' as one of their Top of the World tracks - read the full review below. BBC Radio 3's Late Junction have been giving Coracle lots of airplay and the trio was very excited when Fiona Talkington came to one of our launch shows ! Verity Sharp features '`Seed Stitch' HERE . De Reauters magazine came and interviewed me just before my London launch at Cecil Sharp House. You can read the article HERE.
The Emily Portman Trio will be doing a couple of festivals in August so look out for us at Sidmouth and Shambala. Our November Tour has now been announced too - hopefully see you along the road!
