Belshazzar’s Feast Christmas Tour, November / December 2017.

Thursday, November 30, 2017

The band write;

Belshazzar’s Feast Christmas Tour.

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry,
You’d better not pout, we’re telling you why!

Why? Because you could be so much worse off. You could be missing Belshazzar’s Feast’s 9th annual Christmas tour. You could be wallowing in a mire of your own abject misery whilst we enthrall and entertain our delighted and delightful audienceswhilst simultaneously and magnanimously offering them a choice and seasonal retail opportunity thus selflessly helping to alleviate the relentless, overbearing commercial
pressure thrust upon them by the capitalist military-industrial hierarchical complex during this time of peace and goodwill. AND, to make life so much simpler and undemanding, we take both cash and credit cards.

Four gigs have sold out (unlike us)  - Barton, Shrewsbury, Dungworth, and Whitchurch - so you do need to hurry whilst stocks last. Whether it’s carolling in Croydon, wassailing in Wiltshire or noeling in Nettlebed that tickles your festive fancy, book now to avoid disappointing us.

In other news:

Both Pauls have been engaged in R&D as animateurs and consultants for Macclesfield’s biennial Barnaby Festival. Paul S has researched local songs, set some new texts to music and formed a festival choir; Paul H has unearthed some local tunes, old and new, and set up an instrumental ensemble. Both groups will be appearing with the Pauls in Macclesfield at some point during next year’s festival, 15th-24th June 2018.

Paul H will be relaxing in a studio in deepest, darkest Dorset during January and February recording a follow up to Pagoda Project’s debut cd Clarion. His pre-Brexit tune book will be ready for publication in time for the May 2018 tour, featuring such gems as Hole in The (Berlin) Wall, Grimstock(holm) und Drei around Drei usw.

On the back of touring with Faustus in both Germany (while we still can) and the UK, Paul S is on the road with the Remnant Kings. Shortly after the Belshazzar’s Feast tour he will be be performing with John Spiers for the reformed Whitchurch Folk Club’s New Year’s Eve ceilidh, helping to host a Twelfth Night celebration at the Royal Shakespeare Company, and then off on a fortnight’s stint with The Transports.
