SOUNDCHECK featuring THE PORTRAITS
Live at The Old Firestation, Frome
Sat 27th January 2018
Lorraine Millington (Vocals, Guitar)
Jeremy Millington (Vocals, Piano, Stomp)
The Portraits are Anglo-Irish husband and wife Alternative Folk duo Jeremy and Lorraine Millington.
In 2016 The Portraits, released a tribute song for Jo Cox MP, Nobody Can Ever Murder Love – a call for unity in Jo’s name at this time of global instability. The song was championed by Clare Balding on BBC Radio 2 and led to an invitation to the duo to play and talk about the song live on her show in April 2017.
The Portraits brought their upbeat sound in 2017 to Weyfest, Wallingford Bunkfest, Liverpool’s Folk On The Dock (main stage curated by BBC’s Janice Long) and Cornwall Folk Festival amongst other events, their positive message of unity over division, of valuing what we share over our differences, and their stories of the world’s forgotten people, proving infectious and leaving audiences moved to tears and laughter in equal measure.
