Georgia Shackleton + Trio

Georgia Shackleton high res press (1) reduced.jpg

Having recently released her debut solo album 'Harry's Seagull' to critical acclaim, Georgia is currently touring solo material across the UK and Europe performing music as a duo with guitarist Aaren Bennett. Georgia works with fiddle, voice, tenor guitar and drones to create crisp arrangements of old English folk songs, and new compositions. Her self penned songs and traditional re-workings achieving national radio play on BBC radio 2, BBC radio 4, and a BBC 3 live session. 

 

Georgia takes great influence from the traditional singers of the East of England. Traditional material she performs often stems from her native East Anglia and her own compositions are often inspired by stories from the region and the area's unique, compelling landscape. Her solo album, ‘Harry’s Seagull’ is a celebration of East Anglian traditional music. The album is named after a tune she wrote and dedicated to Harry Cox, after the touching discovery that he kept a wounded seagull as a pet for a period of time.

"Harry's Seagull shows just how invigorating traditional music can be and how old songs sung with affection can sparkle like new. One of the freshest and most appealing folk albums of the year"

Georgia is also bring her Trio:

Frequently referred to as one of the hardest working bands on the scene, 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 unique, distinctive songwriting style of Georgia, combined with the vibrant instrumental brilliance of Aaren and 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.

Georgia last played here in 2022, and before that in 2018. They'll be here Saturday and Sunday.
