Introducing The Portlands

I headed home this week to meet up with The Portlands, a folk rock band from Leigh, Lancashire. The quintuplets successes since forming in 2009 have taken them all the way to America, and later this month will see them begin a European tour which is being extended by the day.

With two EPs under their belts and countless live gigs and festival performances, their experience and skill equate to a rich and mature sound that is both warm and intense.  Their strong, guitar based style switches fluently from melodic finger picking to heavy get up and dance strumming, combined in such a way that makes their live performances something to behold.

You needn’t take my word for it however, fortunately I had my camera with me…
