One of the best-loved duos in folk music, BBC Folk Award nominees Belshazzar’s Feast start with traditional folk music, add a touch of classical and jazz, throw in a bit of pop and music hall, and top it off with a wry humour that has won them fans across the world.
Paul Sartin (of Bellowhead and Faustus) and Paul Hutchinson (of Pagoda Project) have together wowed audiences with their eclectic mix of songs and virtuosity, and their between-songs chat is guaranteed to send audiences home with smiles on their faces.
Combining accordian, oboe, violin and piano Belshazzar’s Feast are an eccentric and wickedly inventive duo with extravagant tastes.
“Few can match this duo in concert for entertainment and great music” The Independent
“breath-taking, the between-tunes interchange is as intelligent and hilarious as the music. But don’t let me give you the impression they’re a lightweight comedy act: they finish the set with a haunting piece of oboe and accordion magic which has the audience spellbound.’ Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
