New Routes November

Date:Sat 10 Nov
Time:Doors 7.30pm. Music starts 8pm.

Another installment in the New Routes series, an evening of acoustic, folk and roots artists.

Set out cabaret style with candles on tables, it’s a comfortable and intimate space to listen to the best emerging and established artists from the area.


The Shackleton Trio

The Shackleton Trio are Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin).  True and natural talents of the folk tradition, their brilliant 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.

The uniquely beautiful songwriting skills of Georgia Shackleton, combined with the vibrant, virtuoso instrumental brilliance of Aaren Bennett, Nic Zuppardi and Georgia’s pure and original folk voice have developed and matured through two critically acclaimed albums (The Dog Who Would Not Be Washed and new release Fen, Farm and Deadly Water) into a musical force just as likely to move you to tears as to move you to your feet. 

The band is now gaining significant UK and International exposure, both live and on the radio, with plays on Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 Folk Show, and an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival's main stage alongside numerous appearances at a host of UK and European festivals.


George Breakfast  

George’s mother often related how he used to sing in French on the bus as a very young child… not something he remembers… but then who remembers everything? He’s been picking and scratching on stringed instruments since he was around thirteen... Canadian ukulele, guitars and onwards... bass, mandolin, bouzouki...always to the accompaniment of much singing.

By his late teens he had begun writing and singing his own songs....and has been doing so ever since....pubs, clubs, street corners, subways, festivals, theatres, radio shows, even a little TV... done so in most western European countries, and a fair amount of the USA, where he lived for nine years.

Some of his songs have been covered by other artists, both in performance and on recordings. He has made a number of recordings himself, both solo, and as a member of all kinds of line-ups...there's a whole bunch of them here
