Friday 11th May 2018, 8pm in Keevil Village Hall
After their recent triumph at the Australia National Folk Festival in Canberra in April, Belshazzar’s Feast appear at Keevil Village Hall as part of their nationwide tour.
This is especially welcome news for one half of the duo Paul Hutchinson, because he is a Keevil resident. ‘The round trip of 22,000 miles to Australia was a little daunting, whereas I think I can walk to this one’ he said none too confidently.
If you haven’t witnessed Belshazzar’s Feast before, beware! They are very slightly subversive, treating folk music with the respect it deserves whilst throwing in snippets of classical music and humour. They seem to be becoming regulars on Radio 2. After baffling Clare Balding on her Christmas Day show in 2016, they were invited guests on The Chris Evans show celebrating St George’s Day this year.
Doors open at 7.30 and you will be relieved to hear that there will be wine, beer and soft drinks available in the interval.
‘Duo known for their sense of humour as well as their impressive musicianship’ – The Guardian
As heard but not seen with Clare Balding on BBC Radio 2, and on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Time’
