About

Smart, funny and engaging, Beth Portman performs a musical style she calls Acoustic Folk Jazz-a nostalgic infusion of folk, early jazz, swing, blues and bluegrass. With catchy melodic lyrics that evoke poignancy and humour, Portman's rich-toned powerful voice has been compared to those of k.d. lang and Maria Muldaur. Strumming her ukulele or guitar, this songstress delights audiences by touching on life's emotions and stories melding the past with the present.
