The Shackleton Trio
June 14 @ 19:30 - 23:30£12.50
So popular, we invited them back. It’s what happened when The Shackleton Trio played their first run of Scottish dates earlier this year. Everyone wanted to book them again, and when we heard they would be coming back up again from their base in Norfolk, we decided to invited them back too.
You’ll hear influences that span British, American and Scandinavian traditions. But this is no pick ‘n’ mix designed as a please-all gesture.
Instead, your head will be washed clean, bathed by the purity of the melodic blend that is distinctly their own.
These are three superlative musicians, so truly meant-to-be-together, the performance is a joy to behold, featuring powerful instrumentation and rich three-part vocal harmonies from Aaren Bennett (guitar), Nic Zuppardi (mandolin) and Georgia (fiddle and vocals). The band has earned its stripes from relentless touring both at home and abroad, in the process winning a reputation as one of the best live acts on the circuit.
In 2018, they were seen by more people than ever, having toured Scandinavia and played many of the bigger festivals, including a main stage slot at Cambridge Folk Festival where many felt they had been one of the oputstanding highlights.
