Portico Biography (Wikipedia)

Portico Quartet (briefly Portico in the years 2015 and 2016) are a band from London. The group is composed of Jack Wylie (soprano and tenor saxophone), Duncan Bellamy (Hang and drums), and Milo Fitzpatrick (double bass). Keir Vine (keyboards and hang) had replaced Nick Mulvey (Hang and percussion), who left in early 2011 to pursue his career as a singer-songwriter. Vine then left the group on 1 August 2014 but returned in 2016 when the group returned to being a quartet.

The 'Portico' moniker comes from when one of their gigs was rained off in Italy, and they ended up playing under a portico.

The group is know of their use of the Hang in their modern jazz pieces. Their debut album Knee-deep in the North Sea, was nominated for the 2008 Mercury Prize.
