FEASTIE BOYS ARE BACK ON THE MAP! ….with new music and real concerts at venues and festivals from 17th May, when the roadmap will allow it. Some are indoor and some outside. At some venues they’re doing two concerts so that the audience can be well spaced out – yes two in one night !!
Having met in the mid nineties, Paul and Paul formed a duo and began working for ceilidhs and social dances. Their other early recordings were song and tune sets and they toured America and Belgium, mostly playing for social dances. Working with caller Andrew Shaw on a project exploring the work of the 18th century composer Nathaniel Kynaston, they went on to release Mr Kynaston’s Famous Dance volume 1 (2000) and volume 2 (2002). Another album drawn from the social dance repertoire, John Playford’s Secret Ball, followed in 2001.
Belshazzar’s Feast have released nine critically acclaimed albums across their long career. Their first winter-themed album, Frost Bites (2009), earned them a nomination for Best Duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. In celebration of twenty years of working together, 2014 saw the release of The Whiting’s On The Wall.
‘One of the most intimate and entertaining live albums I’ve heard.’ – Songlines
Regularly appearing on regional and national radio stations and folk shows, recent appearances include broadcasts on Radio Canberra (pictured below), BBC Radio 2 with Chris Evans and with Claire Balding, and on BBC Radio 3 In Tune. The duo also work together with charity organisations, and in hospitals and care homes. They were the support band for Bellowhead’s tour of the UK in 2009. As they put together a new album and a scrapbook-style book, the duo are reflecting on their 25 years plus of performing together, and looking ahead to being able to go the road to share the new material with fans.
