THE award winning duo Belshazzar's Feast come to Bromsgrove this week as part of Bromsgrove Folk Club's contribution to Bromsgrove Festival.
The exciting pairing of Paul Sartin and Paul Hutchinson is the ideal solution for all tastes in music be it folk, classical or jazz.
The music is breathtaking and wickedly inventive and the between-tunes interchange is as intelligent and hilarious as the music.
In 1995 Paul Hutchinson (accordion) and Paul Sartin (oboe, violin and vocals) shared a musical passion borne out of the desire to earn sufficient money to support their extravagant lifestyles.
Their amazing musicianship coupled with wry humour stunned audiences around Europe and the States.
As a singer, oboist, violinist, composer and arranger Paul Sartin performs and records extensively with BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winners and nominees Bellowhead and Faustus.
He edits publications of music manuscripts, delivers workshops, and is consultant and director of the Andover Museum Loft Singers.
Having gained an Honours Degree and Choral Scholarship at Oxford, he gained a First for his Masters in traditional music, and in 2007 received a 75th Anniversary Award from the English Folk Dance and Song Society.
Paul Hutchinson is well known from his work with Hoover the Dog, Karen Tweed and the Playford Liberation Front.
He is a superlative accordion player with a unique style inspired by church organ music, violins and concertinas and is an experienced workshop leader.
The pair will be playing at the folk club Thursday, June 26 supported by Bromsgrove favourites, Fairfield who opened the stage presentation at the recent Bromsgrove Festival opening gala.
