Grayshott Folk Club Presents Alden & Patterson with The Shackleton Trio

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Grayshott Folk Club welcomes back:
Christina Alden & Alex Patterson with The Shackleton Trio

Both of these sets of musicians have played for us before, individually and as a big band so we know to expect a real treat.

This will be a rare collaborative concert bringing together two of East Anglia’s finest folk exports; The Shackleton Trio and Christina Alden & Alex Patterson. Both acts have racked up tens of thousands of miles on the road, playing at some of Europe’s most prestigious venues and festivals, and achieved national airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and BBC 6 Music.

Expect two sets of collaborative music including brand new material as a five-piece, alongside re-imagined big band arrangements of the material of each act. Soaring five-part harmonies, driving fiddles, banjo, mandolin and guitar grooves blending together with a transatlantic session feel.

Christina Alden & Alex Patterson:
Christina Alden & Alex Patterson are multi-instrumentalists and songwriters from Norwich. Their music is rich with intertwining harmony, sensitive accomplished musicianship and a creative songwriting style that is both delicate and moving. Deeply inspired by the world around them, they have a keen environmental eye to craft stories with the natural world at its heart, reflecting on the relationship between humans and the wild.

Most recently, “Etta’s Song” was featured on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show:

‘A milestone for contemporary folk songwriting’ – Bright Young Folk
‘A bright, lively collection of songs that plays so sweetly it evokes the sensation of a summer folk festival’ – The Guardian
‘Gorgeous harmonies and lush melodies’ – BBC Countryfile

The Shackleton Trio:
Captivating song writing and fiery tunes. The unmistakable 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, 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.
