More than a decade ago Paul Hutchinson (accordion) and Paul Sartin (oboe, violin and vocals) joined together 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 and Belshazzar's Feast was born.
As a singer, oboist, violinist, composer and arranger Paul Sartin performs and records extensively with BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Winners and Nominees Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast and Faustus. 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 & concertinas!
