One of the best-loved duos in folk music, previous BBC Folk Awards Best Duo 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 and eccentric mix of songs and tunes and their between-songs chat guaranteed to send audiences home with smiles on their faces.

Reviews

“Amidst the jesting and hilarity, they sit as fine an example of traditional English folk music as you’re likely to hear.”

Mike Ainscoe, Bright Young Folk

“Their music is breath-taking and wickedly inventive and the between-tunes interchange as intelligent and hilarious as the music. ”

BBC Radio 2 Mike Harding Show online, reviewing Sidmouth Festival

“Few can match this duo in concert for entertainment and great music.”
