Georgia Shackleton Trio

Lively trio with a bright, sweet and toe-tapping sound

This lively young trio combine vocals, fiddle, guitar and mandolin to play a blend of old time, bluegrass and self penned material. Georgia, a graduate of the renowned Newcastle folk degree course, accompanies herself on the fiddle, and writes “wordy songs about other people”, taking inspiration from places and faces, as well as traditional, regional and early 20th century material. With her are Aaren Bennett on guitar and Nic Zuppardi, another Newcastle graduate, on mandolin. It’s a bright, toe-tapping and interesting mix of sounds, topped off with Georgia’s sweet lead vocals and tight harmonies.
