Live Music : 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.


Georgia’s skills as a singer and instrumentalist have been put to the test in numerous different contexts, and this trio sees her teaming up with guitar powerhouse Aaren Bennett and mandolin ace Nic Zuppardi. Together they have toured the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands, appeared at Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Towersey Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week, Folk East, and concert halls and folk clubs across the UK.

Music made famous in the recordings of The Skillet Lickers, Charlie Poole and The Carter Family to name just a few.

Live Music : Richard Navarro

Richard Navarro is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose extraordinary live performances are fast becoming the talk of the UK live music scene.

Using a self-invented wireless loop station that allows him to record live from anywhere on stage, Richard seamlessly layers together vocals, violin, trumpet, percussion and piano to create powerful arrangements of both his own songs and well-known tracks.

“Finely-crafted songwriting” Joan Armatrading

As a songwriter, Richard is the ‘real deal’, penning and performing songs on subjects as diverse as an expensive first-dates, Facebook, or the debt crisis. Working in the studio with the Mercury award-winning producer Charlie Andrew (Alt-J/Madness), tracks from Richard’s latest album ‘Along the Lines’ have so far gained airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC Local Radio and various radio stations in the United States.

The artist’s cutting-edge collaboration with VJ experts Butch Auntie made its sell-out debut at the Marlowe Theatre early in 2014, and the stage show, with its pioneering use of technology and bespoke visuals for each one of Richard’s tracks – has caught the attention of venues and music festivals across the UK and Europe.

“A wonderful voice” Susan Marling, BBC Radio 2

As an outstanding live entertainer, he is able to combine his witty, engaging original songwriting with an eclectic repertoire of well-loved material that stretches from looped baroque violin through to jazz standards and contemporary popular hits.

Live Music : Jally Kebba Susso + Band!

If there is one name to look out for in 2017 in African funk music it is Jally Kebba Susso and his band Manding Sabu.

The kora is the traditional harp of the griot of West Africa and Jally Kebba was born and raised into 74 generations of this Gambian musical heritage. But he is not your ordinary griot.

Forging a new trajectory of sound for the West African harp, Jally Kebba skilfully blends the traditional repertoire into his own heady-jazz concoction that is immediately accessible and uplifting and yet filled with nuances and intoxicating rhythmical layers that give the music depth and intrigue.

Raised in a household of musicians, Jally Kebba was exposed to incredible musicianship from a very early age and under the guidance of his father Bully Suso, a very well-respected kora player and his elder brothers by 13 he was touring internationally across Europe.

He honed his own sound over years of experimentation on the London underground scene since 2002 when he relocated to UK. In 2007 he formed his band Manding Sabu and has since released two albums of original compositions - Banjul-London (2017) and Malaye Warr (2012) and gigged extensively.

Expect an electric stage show. With ease and confidence, this band connects. Precision, speed and a merciless energy characterise their performance style making them solid crowd-pullers at festivals such as Wilderness, Shambala and Secret Garden Party in UK. Songs are sung in Mandika and are songs of praise and love and are a timely call for togetherness and solidarity, palpable to all language speakers.

If you enjoy afrobeat and funk, and need a good dance session, you’ll find yourself in good company - to experience the kora as you’ve never seen it before.
