The Portraits

About The Portraits                   

Lorraine and Jeremy Millington are a Somerset duo and are veterans of six Glastonbury Festivals.  Their storytelling song style, a worldly mix of Anglo-Irish harmonies and upbeat catchy tunes, provides the backdrop to a recurring theme of unity and peace.  In 2017 their tribute song for Jo Cox went viral and was championed by Clare Balding on BBC Radio 2.

2018 was largely taken up with a crazy and fabulous Song of Unity project, where people sent the band video selfies saying or singing one word into their phones, ‘Harmonise’, with every single one used on their new single of the same name, inspired by Jo Cox’s mantra of “we have more in common than that which divides us”.

Their forthcoming 2019 album will feature ‘Harmonise’ and a dozen more songs inspired in one way or another by the same theme of the triumph of harmony over discord. In that way, it will truly be a song cycle for the turbulent times we are living through.

March 2nd Stogumber Village Hall starting at 7.30 pm. Simple hot supper included. Tickets (£12) will be available by clicking here from the website and from Central Stores Stogumber 01984 656214.
