Live Entertainment on Friday October 1st at local pub
The Portraits are Lorraine (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Jeremy (piano, vocals) Millington. Their simple observations of adult life from the perspective of those that have loved, lost, travelled, had children and laughed about it all, making for a cosy brand of acoustic pop with beautiful harmonies and folk and world music tinges.
Harking from Galway and Bristol respectively, Lorraine and Jeremy moved six years ago to France, helping to fine-tune the concept of The Portraits.
Released to critical acclaim, the highly personal 2006 album "Kin", containing Anglicised shades of the French chanson style, was followed by its South-African produced successor “Timescape” in 2008, the latter a colourful and intoxicating mix of world instruments, electronics and the duo’s trademark vocals. These have carved out an individual niche for the duo.
We are pleased to welcome The Portraits to our stage to promote their new album, The Blushing Of A World In White, released 21st June 2010 and a CD signing session.
