Farewell to Belshazzar’s Feast

FOLK stars Paul Sartin and Paul Hutchinson, who perform together as Belshazzar’s Feast, are on their farewell tour, coming to Chippenham Folk Festival on 28th May.

After almost 30 years making music and performing together,  the farewell tour follows last December’s release of That’s All Folkies, their final album, and features new music plus fresh arrangements and recordings of the duo’s favourites from their previous nine albums.

Paul Sartin (oboe, violin, swanee whistle and vocals) and Paul Hutchinson (accordion) are famed for their superlative ability, wit, rapport and depth of experience. Together they have entertained audiences across the UK, Australia and beyond with their eclectic and eccentric mix of tunes, songs and humour.

Their comment on this farewell tour is: “You’ve already had too much of a good thing! We’ve long outstayed our welcome in the travelodges, service stations and garden centres of the world, so it’s high time we headed for new pastures/were put out to grass! Catch us while you can!”
