War Pigeon, just one of the many songs & tunes from The Shackleton Trio that had the Dreamers toes a tapping all night long last Sunday. Georgia, Nick & Aaron were superb on each of their instruments and generated tremendous energy in their music and kept us spellbound throughout their 90 minute set.

Sunday 27th January 2019 at the Sportsmans Arms in Fourlanes, the audience were treated to an avalanche of great songs & music from the off. The subtle tones from Micks voice allied to the complimenting harmony from Paul and a dazzling digital display, up and down the fretboard from Mr Downes, combined beautifully to augment the finely crafted stories in each song. “The Road to Dorchester ” got the roomful of eager...
