Their amazing musicianship coupled with wry humour stunned audiences around Europe and the States. After a brief sabbatical, they're back! If you like Mozart, Beethoven, Elvis Presley and The Spinners avoid them - you have been warned! Belshazzar’s Feast start with traditional folk music, add a touch of classical and jazz, throw in a bit of pop and music hall, and top it off wry humour for a unique live experience. Belshazzar’s Feast received a coveted nomination for the Best Duo Award at the 2010 BBC Folk Awards.
