Belshazzar's Feast

Yesterday to the pretty little village of Norton Tony (a visit to the halfways decent pub, the Malet Arms is a must as the village hall is unlicensed), tucked to the east of Amesbury on the southern edge of Salisbury Plain to see Belshazzar's Feast.

Belshazzars Feast sit on the cusp between Folk and Classical music with a bit of improvisation and a lot of humour thrown in. Paul Sartin's (Faustus, Bellowhead, Christ Church Cathedral Choir) elegant oboe work and classicly trained folk fiddle pumped up by Paul Hutchinson's (Hoover the Dog and the Old Pull and Push band) accordion take Mozart, Bach and Elvis Presley, amongst others, and twist them, turn them and sometimes tie them and themselves into knots. Add a good dose of stories and jokes and the whole evening turns into a riot, well, not quite, but a lot of fun through which their musicianship shines; you can't mess about with the sources they use, in the manner they do, without knowing them, and being able to play them, well. With a few self-penned songs and a few traditional songs sung by Paul Sartin a fully rounded evening. We will go to see them again, maybe in a couple of weeks time when they are playing the David Hall in South Petherton.

I forgot to mention that the gig was sponsored by the excellent Rural Arts Wiltshite project.
