A highly original and energetic musical force just as likely to move you to tears as to move you to your feet.

Frequently referred to as one of the hardest working bands on the scene, The Shackleton Trio is gaining significant UK and International exposure, becoming an in-demand name on the folk circuit. They have been featured on Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 Folk Show and BBC Radio 4, and an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival's main stage alongside a host of UK and European festivals and international tours.

The trio feature 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.


Richard Byers
sings and plays traditional songs from these islands and songs that draw on traditional sources. Richard is a founding member of the Bury Folk Collective and has played and sung widely on the folk circuit, in clubs, concerts and at festivals. He was a member of Ragged Robin and played guitar and mandolin on records by Steve Ashley and on the ‘lost classic’ by Anne Briggs Sing a Song for You (fortunately now found). Richard has been a resident at a number of folk clubs in the south of England, notably at Roy Guest’s Howff in Primrose Hill as part of Ragged Robin, at the legendary musicians’ club New Merlin’s Cave near King’s Cross and, nowadays, happily, at ‘Folk from the Tradition’ nights at Oakes Barn in Bury St Edmunds.
