'Folk at Norden Farm'

A series presenting some of the very best acoustic folk and roots acts in the country.

Wed May 24

BELSHAZZAR'S FEAST. - Paul Sartin (Bellowhead) on oboe, violin, vocals and Paul Hutchinson (Hoover the Dog) on accordion are Belshazzar's Feast. The duo 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 with wry humour for a unique live experience. They are breathtaking and wickedly inventive! 'A blend of serious musicianship and dedicated subversion - enjoy the danger' Living Tradition

They'll guide you through dances like the Muffin Man's Jig and the Cumberland Square Eight with familiar tunes such as Atholl Highlanders, Rogue's March & The Dashing White Sergeant, so no experience is necessary.
Come and enjoy a great evening of dance in our 18th century Long Barn.
