The Alluring Jazz Group Portico Quartet are to Perform at Roundhouse’s In the Round 2018 series

Jan 11 2018 BY bespokemag

Now in its third year, the Roundhouse presents In the Round 2018, a series of shows devoted to intimate performances set in the venue’s iconic main space, staged in a rarely seen fully-seated concert set up. Fast becoming a fixture of the music-lovers’ calendar, the series runs from 31 January to 10 February with a programme often very special shows, including premieres and special sets from an eclectic mix of artists.


The artists we’re keen to see during the In the Round 2018 series is Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet who will be at Roundhouse on February 3rd. The group send out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of three studio albums, from their 2007 breakthrough Knee-Deep in the North Sea, and 2010 John Leckie-produced Isla, to the self-titled recording Portico Quartet in 2012. Now rebooted as Portico Quartet, with the return of Keir Vine on hang drums and keys, after a brief spell as the three-piece Portico, the group released their fourth studio album Art In The Age Of Automation on forward-thinking indie jazz and electronica label Gondwana Records in August 2017. It’s been hailed as possibly their finest album yet, with the band simultaneously delivering both a return to their mesmeric signature sound and fresh new sonic departures in their new music.
