Are they classical? Are they folk? Are they a category not even dreamed of yet by the reviewers? The answer to all three questions is undoubtedly YES - and they're a lot more besides. Belshazzar's Feast starts with traditional folk music, adds a touch of classical and jazz, throws in a bit of music hall and tops it all off with wry humour. Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Faustus) on voice, fiddle and oboe plus Paul Hutchinson (Hoover The Dog) on voice and accordion 'play like no-one else you've ever heard', says Mike Harding (BBC 2 Radio), 'Their music is breathtaking and wickedly inventive.'
