Beth Portman presents her personal perspective of life and love through original lyrics and engaging music, taking her audience on a musical journey that is happily nostalgic but never dated. Accompanying Beth is her 'Good Find' of musicians that complement her own performance on the ukulele and guitar. Instrumentation ranges from an acoustic bass and guitar duo to an expanded version with a female vocalist, who, along with Portman, incorporates percussion through suitcases, picnic baskets and mint boxes. Portman has two recordings, Lovin' and Take a Trip .

Beth Portman has performed at the Edmonton Fringe Festival (...energetic and infectious, The Edmonton Sun), in the Edmonton Streetcar Concert Series (...thoughtful, upbeat and gutsy, Concert Presenter Zizi Lievers), Horizon Stage and Stettler Variety Showcase Series, at the Bailey Theatre for Alberta Culture Days in Camrose and in folk clubs, cafes and trains.

November 2016, Beth created Take a Trip: a Musical Journey for Fort Edmonton Park's Capitol Theatre. Inspired by Beth Portman & the Good Find's 2015 EP Release Take a Trip, this themed concert about trains, the prairies and the connections that bind us featured original songs by Portman.
