The Shackleton Trio features fiddle player Georgia Shackleton alongside guitarist Aaren Bennett and mandolin virtuoso Nic Zuppardi (He alone is worth the entrance).Together they play a 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.
Les Elvin is based in Croydon and plays mainly ragtime guitar. He has a pleasing personality and has good a presentation. His material covers a wide range of styles from across the British Isles and reflects Americana influences. It also includes Celtic and dance instrumentals.
