Foyer Folk: Shackleton Trio

Foyer Folk: Shackleton Trio

Presented by Saffron Hall

Part of Foyer Clubs

Captivating songwriting and fiery tunes that combine mandolin, fiddle, guitar and banjo with powerful three part harmonies. The unmistakable sound of The Shackleton Trio brings to life the stories of their native East Anglia, and beyond.

Touring their brand new album Mousehold, the band draws influence from British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions. Seven years’ performing together has seen the band played on BBC Radio 2, Radio 3 and Radio 4, with gleaming five-star reviews, an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival’s prestigious main stage, a host of UK and European festivals and international tours.
