Portman paddles Coracle on Parrett

EMILY Portman and her Coracle Band stop at Bridgwater Arts Centre on Satur­day 25th March as part of a five-venue spring UK tour.

The band includes violin virtuoso Sam Sweeney and the percussion leader of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, in a five peice line up that creates a magical sound sometimes reminiscent of early Incredible String Band – about to “re-unite” at the Edinburgh Festival.

Hear this exceptional singer and songwriter in Somerset, where the concert starts at 8pm.
