Georgia Shackleton Trio with support from SJ Mortimer.
“An angelic, sometimes haunting voice with fantastic musicianship”
“Tapping right into the tradition and beyond. A remarkable band altogether”
– The Great British Banjo Company
The well-loved Georgia Shackleton Trio combine vocals, fiddle, guitar, mandolin and banjo to play a blend of Americana, folk and self-penned material. Accompanying herself on fiddle, Georgia performs ‘wordy songs about other people’. She takes inspiration from places and faces, as well as the traditional, regional and early 20th century material she also performs.
After studying the highly acclaimed folk and traditional music degree in Newcastle, Georgia has performed in various line ups with an eclectic mix of fantastic musicians. This trio sees her playing alongside Aaren Bennett and Nic Zuppardi on the guitar and mandolin, both seasoned instrumentalists who have played across Europe.
