Multi-instrumentalist, performer and songwriter Tom Portman will be bringing his talents to the stage in Ballina tonight. Tom will be the main attraction live at The Basement in Brennan’s Lane.
Playing acoustic, electric guitar, Dobro and lap steel, Tom presents a wide repertoire. His compositions draw on many global styles yet have a distinct flavour of their own. Last year he launched his second solo album, At One, with a sell-out show in Galway's Town Hall Theatre. This self-produced collection features instrumental compositions, songs and arrangements of traditional Irish tunes for fingerstyle guitar and Dobro.
He regularly performs around Ireland from small venues to festivals such as the Electric Picnic and the DLR Festival of world cultures. Internationally, Tom has toured in Poland where he played the Suwalki Blues festival. Portman has also played venues in the UK, North Italy and the South of France. Tom will bring his unique style to the Live at the Basement in Brennan’s Lane, Ballina tonight.
