Awkward Family Portraits

Covering a jump jive leap that spans rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly, classic country and western swing to manouche gypsy jazz and cool ‘50s lounge lizard grooviness, reviewers have picked up on the obvious points of reference such as Carl Perkins or Louis Jordan. But with influences proudly up front and enthusiastically celebrated, Awkward Family Portraits also inject a distinctly 21st century freshness that is laden with spades of roguish charm and humour to interpretations and all band originals.

“Awkward Family Portraits distill wicked musical moonshine from rockabilly, bluegrass, vaudeville and Western swing influences, winningly showcased on 2019’s debut LP Everything We’ve Done Up Until Now Except What We’ve Done Since.”Celtic Connections

Only Child

2022 sees Only Child celebrate their tenth anniversary with their brand new album ‘Straight Lines’. The group have headlined venues including the Music Room (twice), The Zanzibar Club, 81 Renshaw, The Magnet and Thornton Hough Village Club. Only Child have also supported the likes of Blue Rose Code, My Darling Clementine, Pete Wylie, Ian Prowse & Amsterdam, Steve Pilgrim, Gemma Hayes and Mick Flannery. They play solo acoustic, as a fiddle and acoustic guitar duo and as a full band with strings, horns and Irish whistle.

“Only Child take their cue from the likes of Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Mike Scott & The Waterboys and Christy Moore.”- Liverpool Acoustic
