Following a busy summer of UK and European Festivals, The Shackleton Trio will be taking their new release on the road. The Shackleton Trio features fiddle player Georgia Shackleton alongside guitarist Aaren Bennett and mandolinist Nic Zuppardi. Together they play an exciting blend of folk, Americana, and self-penned material instrumentally influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from their native East Anglia. Following the success of their debut album The Dog Who Would Not Be Washed, they are excited to announce brand new release Fen, Farm And Deadly Water, which is already receiving extensive airplay and high praise.
Recorded at Grange Farm Studios in the heart of the Norfolk Fenlands, the album continues to showcase the band’s eclectic musical background. Locally sourced material includes a Fenland song from pig farmer Fred Rooke, the haunting 1611 poem ‘Powte’s Complaint’, as well as the Ancient Cry Of The Radish Boys At Great Yarmouth. The album also showcases the trio’s instrumental prowess, with original compositions ‘The Stanford’ and ‘Bolton Lodge’, alongside Karen Tweed’s ‘Only Viveka’, and Swedish polska ‘The Penknife Killer’. Original songs by Georgia top off an impressively varied yet coherent album that seamlessly blends a broad musical palette.
