Shakey Trill is an original, gutsy and raw blues/folk duo from Saugeen Shores, Ontario, Canada. Shakey was a nickname given to guitarist/vocalist Mike MacDonald because of his jittery hands. Trill, by definition is the sound of two notes being played rapidly back and forth. Tyler Pantlin fittingly exemplifies this with his harmonica technique.
In January 2019 the duo participated at the 35th International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee representing the Bruce County Blues Society. The challenge was a week long event with performances up and down the famous Beale Street. They were part of the solo/duo category which included over 80 different acts from around the globe. Shakey Trill made it into the final round, top 8 spots which earned them the privilege to play at the historic Orpheum Theatre in Memphis.
The group has recorded a debut album, release date to be announced.
