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. With a highly original and energetic musical style, the trio has been a tour de force on the UK and international folk scene over the last six years. They have been featured on Mark Radcliffe's BBC Radio 2 Folk Show and BBC Radio 4, with five star reviews, and an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival's main stage alongside a host of UK and European festivals and international tours.
