Belshazzar’s Feast start with traditional English music, add a touch of classical and jazz, throw in a bit of pop and music hall, and top it off wry humour for a live experience. They take to the road this December and are coming to Canterbury.

Now in their twenty-first year together, Paul Sartin and Paul Hutchinson of Belshazzar’s Feast bring a wealth of talent to the stage.

Mr Sartin was a member of the multi-BBC Radio 2 Award-winning big band Bellowhead, and of Faustus. Consultant and director of the Andover Museum Loft Singers, he is author of Community Choirs Collection – Folk publshed by Faber Music, an editor of music publications, and a BASCA-nominated composer whose commissions include works for the Central School of Speech and Drama, the Choir of Somerville College, Oxford, Streetwise Opera, and most recently, the BBC Radio 4 series Playing the Skyline.

Mr Hutchinson’s love of fusion music originates from his days in the renowned Celtic jazzers, Hoover the Dog. Pagoda Project, with jazz clarinetist, Karen Wimhurst, is the next exciting chapter in his musical journey providing a vehicle for his own compositions. He is resident tutor at Cecil Sharp House, Halsway Manor, Benslow Music Centre and Marlborough College. He has a keen interest in and knowledge of 17th and 18th Century dance music which has resulted in tours to Europe and America.

Belshazzar’s Feast received a coveted nomination for the Best Duo Award at the 2010 BBC Folk Awards and are regulars at folk festivals across the summer, with touring including a popular annual Christmas tour of seasonal songs and tunes. They have released a series of albums across their career, the latest being The Whiting’s On The Wall (2014/Unearthed), a live album recorded over the course of two concerts at The Pound in Corsham.

The duo are coming to the Marlowe Studio on December 20.
