Anglo-Irish alt-folk duo The Portraits are husband and wife songwriters Lorraine & Jeremy Millington from Galway & Bristol respectively. 2016 saw The Portraits play at Glastonbury Festival & complete work on their seventh studio album Global Heartbeat, released on 21st April 2017.
The album is a call to the world to unite against hatred & heal its divisions. The first single, Nobody Can Ever Murder Love, was the duo’s instant reaction to the horror of Jo Cox’s murder in June 2016 & led to an invitation to play and chat about the song live on Clare Balding’s BBC Radio 2 show Good Morning Sunday on BBC Radio 2 in April 2017. Uniquely, the duo’s new CD album is purchasable not with money but with a promise to spread the word about the band by becoming part of The Portraits’ new ‘PPP’ fanclub
Folk On The Dock was shortlisted in the Liverpool City Region Tourism awards for “Large Tourism Event of The Year”
