Katie Spencer & Clare Portman

Friday 22nd November 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Our Nov Guest + Plus Open Mic Night at OLC will feature sets from two amazing singer songwriters Katie Spencer & Clare Portman.

Katie Spencer is from East Yorkshire & currently lives on the coast at Hornsea. At just 22 years old she is a prodigious talent. She previously played at OLC in May 2017 when she greatly impressed us & also guesting on Doug Welch’s Radio Kent Folk show. In the interim her performances have prompted rave reviews from many influential plaudits & folk royalty. We are delighted to welcome her for a return visit.

Katie’s guitar playing has echoes of my dear friend the late great Bert Jansch. Like a musical weaver she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar’s strings and produces little tapestries of song.” Ralph McTell

SE London based Clare Portman will be backed by the excellent Paul Jonathan Hunt (mandolin, fiddle & cajon) & Noel Lake (guitar & backing vocals).

Clare is a music graduate who has been playing & writing her own songs since childhood. These days balancing her time between performing & teaching in schools, her song writing talent, powerful expressive voice & dynamic rhythmic guitar accompaniments are receiving growing critical acclaim.

As always we will start the night with Open Mic aiming to fit in many floor-spots as possible in the available time.
