Portico Quartet set off on biggest UK tour yet, from Friday 5th March 2010
This Friday (5th March), Portico Quartet head out on a thirteen date UK tour.
The quartet from London were brought to the public's attention back in 2008 when their debut album 'Knee Deep in the North Sea' received a Mercury Music nomination for album of the year, losing out to Elbow's 'Seldom Seen Kid'.
2009 follow-up 'Isla' (released on Peter Gabriel's Real World records) didn't see the band resting on their laurels, and had allgigs reviewer Lucas Jones, stating:
This has to be my album of the year so far; it should get second Mercury nomination and possibly a win. It's a beautiful album and the Portico Quartet have revolutionized the way others and possibly I see ambient music but also my perception of modern jazz.
You can catch the band on the road this March as they head the length-and-breadth of England, with a bonus Welsh date thrown-in - at the very beginning of the tour, in fact on Friday 5th March at the Pontardawe Arts Centre.
A few days later the boys head home to London for their biggest ever date at the lovely Barbican on 8th March, supported by singer/ songwriter Krystle Warren (definitely worth turning up on time for that one!).
Tickets for the tour start at just £9 - London sold-out a while back, but there are tickets for most other dates - check the "Tickets" buttons below or check the gig info for the venue box office number/ website to secure yours!
