The Shackleton Trio (formerly The Georgia Shackleton Trio) features fiddle player Georgia Shackleton alongside guitarist Aaren Bennett and mandolinist Nic Zuppardi. Together they play an exciting blend of folk, Americana, and self-penned material instrumentally influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from their native East Anglia.
Frequently referred to as one of the hardest working bands on the scene, The Shackleton Trio will be touring in Scotland and England in June. Fast becoming an in demand name on the folk circuit. 2018 saw plays on Mark Radcliffe’s Radio 2 Folk Show, music featured on BBC Radio 4, ★★★★★ reviews, an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival’s main stage alongside a host of UK and European festivals and international tours.
The unique, distinctive songwriting style of Georgia Shackleton, combined with the vibrant instrumental brilliance of Aaren Bennett, Nic Zuppardi and Georgia’s pure and original voice have developed and matured through two critically acclaimed albums: The Dog Who Would Not Be Washed and new release Fen, Farm and Deadly Water.
