Event description

A variety music acts that will get people’s toes tapping and feet thumping on King’s Staithe Square.

12:00 – Pot of Gold

An eclectic bunch of nine musicians who sing sea shanties and folk music accompanied by a melodeon, a couple of guitars and a banjo. They got together early in 2017 and since then have sung in pubs, clubs, churches and residential homes entertaining a varied mix of audiences. They really enjoy keeping the spirit of these songs alive and current in the 21st century.

13:00 – Shackleton Trio

A highly original and energetic musical force just as likely to move you to tears as to move you to your feet.

Frequently referred to as one of the hardest working bands on the scene, The Shackleton Trio is gaining significant UK and International exposure, becoming an in demand name on the folk circuit. 2018 saw plays on Mark Radcliffe’s Radio 2 Folk Show, ★★★★★ reviews, an appearance on Cambridge Folk Festival’s main stage alongside a host of UK and European festivals and international tours.

The Shackleton Trio are Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin). Natural talents of the folk tradition, their 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 unique, distinctive songwriting style of Georgia Shackleton, combined with the vibrant instrumental brilliance of Aaren Bennett, Nic Zuppardi and Georgia’s pure and original 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.
