Passed

This event has been and gone.

With captivating songwriting and fiery tunes, The Shackleton Trio is a highly original and energetic musical force just as likely to move you to tears as to move you to your feet. This is a band that loves playing together, and they’re not to be missed! Touring their brand new album Mousehold, The Shackleton Trio are Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin). Natural talents of the folk tradition, their self-penned material blends
seamlessly with their imaginative yet authentic re-workings of traditional folk standards, influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from the group’s native East Anglia. The band has featured on Mark Radcliffe’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Show and BBC Radio 4. They’ve toured widely across the UK and internationally, including an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival’s main stage and a variety of festivals across Europe.

Featuring

The Shackleton Trio

The Shackleton Trio appearing at this event

Captivating songwriting and fiery tunes that combine mandolin, fiddle, guitar and banjo with powerful three part harmonies. The unmistakeable sound of The Shackleton Trio brings to life the stories of their native East Anglia, and beyond. Touring their brand new album 'Mousehold', the trio features Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin and banjo). Collectively the band draw influence from British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, whilst Georgia’s flair for sourcing largely unsung material from East Anglia keeps the band firmly rooted in their local tradition. Seven years performing together has seen the band played on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4, with gleaming ????? reviews, an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival’s prestigious main stage, a host of UK and European festivals and international tours, and many miles in the Mondeo. This is a band that clearly enjoy playing together, and are not to be missed.
