Awkward Family Portraits

Awkward Family Portraits have been dishing out rockin’ roots music to the streets of Glasgow since 2016. With a roguish charm and signature style that elevates them far above the dusty stereotypes of the genre, AFP are a band that have one central goal and that is to get you to abandon all of the outside world’s hang-ups and move. The brainchild of four likeminded musicians with a wealth of originality and technical skill at their disposal, you only need to catch the briefest glimpse of one of their live shows to feel an insatiable urge to make your way into the crowd and let loose!

“Awkward Family Portraits distil 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

“They have continually depicted themselves as a uniquely devised proposition among the nation’s thriving music scene. With all four members converging on an intertwined set of influences from yesteryear, their music goes beyond mere revivalism and strives to breathe a formidable exhalation of fresh air in the direction into rockabilly, skiffle and undertones of folk.”
– Tenement TV’s Ones To Watch

“What a great band!”
– Roddy Hart, BBC
