Jan 16th The Shackleton Trio

The Shackleton Trio (formerly The Georgia Shackleton Trio) play an exciting blend of Americana, folk and self-penned material. Accompanying herself on the fiddle, Georgia writes and performs 'wordy songs about other people’, instrumentally influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from her native East Anglia. Playing a blend of Americana, folk and self-penned material, Georgia is an alumna of Newcastle University’s Folk Degree course.

Georgia’s skills as a singer and instrumentalist have been put to the test in numerous different contexts, but her own trio sees her teaming up with guitar powerhouse Aaren Bennett and mandolin ace Nic Zuppardi.

Barron Brady

A very welcome return to this talented duo. Simon is a superb guitarist and Ros writes lovely songs (noteably Jenny's Mermaid) and sings with ‘bounce’ and energy!

Ros and Si have a lovely reputation for songs and tunes delivered in a very individual style.

Barron Brady comprising Ros Brady and Si Barron are contemporary songwriters and interpreters of traditional English folk song. They live in Devon and perform nationwide.

Drawn to strongly narrative songs with subjects ranging from Devon legend to contemporary rural reportage they invite the listener to accompany them through strange landscapes whose denizens include coffee drinking Mermaids, corn mowing Devils, flying highwaymen and disappearing Hedgerows.
They have a dynamic acoustic style combining joy and verve in performance with an assured stage presence garnered from five years of performing nationwide.
Simon’s ballistic fingerstyle guitar complemented by Rosalind’s harmonium and whistles underlines their harmony singing.
Barron Brady are touring extensively across the UK promoting their new album

"These two artists demonstrate most clearly in their work the relevance of an old tradition expertly employed to reflect a modern world, appealing to both the intellect and the heart."

Si and Ros have been writing and touring as the folk duo Barron Brady for ten years and have released three albums during that time.

 British folk and roots inspired duo, Honey & the Bear, combine delicately interweaving vocal harmonies with powerful guitar riffs, foot stomping rhythms and catchy melodies.

Since then, they have played many venues across East Anglia as well as travelling to Germany for their first European tour.
