RUSTY SHACKLE

South Wales based indie folk roots band Rusty Shackle have been captivating audiences with their incredible live performances since early 2010.  Their shows blend well crafted catchy tunes with stunning high-energy level performances which will make sure you’ll leave exhausted with their tunes swimming around your head for days afterwards.

The six-piece group are made up of band members Liam Collins, Mathew Barkwick, Owen Emmanuel, Ryan Williams and brothers Scott and James McKeon.  They amalgamate guitars , vocal harmonies, fiddle, banjo, mandola, trumpet and percussion to create a sound that is unique to them and one that instantly fills you with emotion and energy.  Rusty Shackle draw influences from Folk, Roots, Rock, Celtic and Old time Blues.

With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base already in place, Rusty Shackle have found themselves to be seasoned regulars on the UK festival circuit.  Their most prestigious performances to date have been at Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk and Beautiful Days Festival.

The summer of 2014 also saw the band cross the Atlantic to America, where they toured festivals and venues in the southern states.

As well as playing masses of live shows the band have managed to release an EP and two albums over the past few years, with songs from all three gaining local and national airplay.

“… a wonderful album that would be very much appreciated by the legendary Robert Plant.” – Bob Harris, Radio 2

“They really have understood what contemporary folk music is about and aimed it for the big stage.” – Fatea Showcase Sessions

“They mine a vein of grubby, ball-waggling folk that Mumford & Sons would baulk at whilst supping champers” – live music scene

“Rusty Shackle come on like a punk Bellowhead or a poppier Pogues.” – A soundreaction
