MusicBeth Nielsen Chapman with Robert Vincent

In association with David Hull Promotions, Portico is thrilled to invite you to see the legendary songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman with guest Robert Vincent in a special concert for Easter Monday. A fantastic opportunity to see amazing talent in an intimate and beautiful venue.

Twice Grammy-nominated

Beth Nielsen Chapman – Hearts of Glass Tour

Considered by many to be one of the finest singer/songwriters of her generation, Beth Nielsen Chapman has penned hits for artists including Emmylou Harris, Bette Midler, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Roberta Flack, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Willie Nelson. In concert her songs are interwoven with wonderful story telling, all rooted in folk and Americana traditions, adding to the emotion and magic of the experience.     

Beth Nielsen Chapman’s new Americana release, “Hearts Of Glass” is a powerful collection of songs that dig deep into the place within us where vulnerability meets strength. Produced by Sam Ashworth, Hearts Of Glass is sparse and beautifully recorded. The songs, mostly written by Beth alone, include several new compositions, from the haunting Epitaph For Love to the instant classic You’re Still My Valentine”, to the infectious Enough For Me”.  Hearts of Glass also features several gems from Beth’s back catalogue that have moved from piano to guitar. This show will take you into the centre of truth and the beautiful dance of life and love. 

This Kiss!

The Simple Things

Robert Vincent

Robert Vincent

Robert Vincent is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Liverpool. He is currently (March 2018) in the UK Country Charts at Number 1 after receiving rave reviews on his recent appearance on The Old Grey Whistle Test (see above). It comes as no surprise then that the legendary Bob Harris ​is one of his many fans.

Having seen him play live at an event called Bluebird at the Bluecoat ​which brought the legendary Bluecoat Cafe from Nashville to Liverpool, Bob invited Robert to record one of his Under The Apple Tree Sessions ​in his home studio and also for his Radio 2​ show. Clearly this consolidated Bob’s admiration for this talented musician as he recently awarded Robert the prestigious and first ever Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award ​for Americana UK ​describing him as”absolutely magnetic”.

I am so impressed with Robert’s music. Strong songs laced with blues and country. He is the real deal.
