About The Shackleton Trio

The Shackleton Trio are Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin). True and natural talents of the folk tradition, their brilliant 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 uniquely beautiful songwriting skills of Georgia Shackleton, combined with the vibrant, virtuoso instrumental brilliance of Aaren Bennett, Nic Zuppardi and Georgia’s pure and original folk 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) into a musical force just as likely to move you to tears as to move you to your feet.

The band is now gaining significant UK and International exposure, both live and on the radio, with plays on Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 Folk Show, and an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival's main stage alongside numerous appearances at a host of UK and European festivals.
