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!
“Elements of swing, vaudeville, hillbilly and skiffle come together through a quaint collection of songs, delivered with sincerity and relentless enthusiasm” ★★★★★
The Modern Record
“Awkward Family Portraits can take their music to shadowy and intriguing places. If you like a bit of dark cabaret, soundtracked by the likes of Kurt Weill, The Real Tuesday Weld, the much missed Vagabond Opera, and Frank’s Wild Years Tom Waits, then this is the band for you” Scots Whay Hae
