ALDEN, PATTERSON & DASHWOOD with THE SHACKLETON TRIO Tonight we host some of East Anglia’s finest young musicians and both of these trios have played for us before. We know how good they are, which is why we have invited them back to play for us again. Each trio will play their own set and for the last set of the evening, they will join together to form a six-piece band. Norwich-based Folk/Americana trio A, P and D, weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies.

The Shackleton Trio play an exciting blend of Americana, Folk and self-penned material. Accompanying herself on the fiddle, Georgia Shackleton writes and performs ‘wordy songs about other people’, and is instrumentally influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from her native East Anglia. Georgia’s skills as a singer and instrumentalist have been put to the test in numerous different contexts, and this trio sees her teaming up with guitar powerhouse Aaren Bennett and mandolin ace Nic Zuppardi. Together they have toured the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands, appeared at Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Towersey Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week, Folk East, and concert halls and Folk clubs all across the UK.
