when we welcome:     Belshazzar's Feast     to Dartford Folk Club

(Please click on the artists' names to learn more about the acts.)

Paul Sartin (vocals, oboe, violin and swanee whistle) and Paul Hutchinson (accordion) together entertain audiences across the UK, Australia and beyond
with their eclectic and eccentric mix of tunes, songs and chat that sends audiences home with a smile.

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. Belshazzar's Feast have now 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.

Regularly appearing on regional and national radio stations and folk shows, recent appearances include broadcasts on Radio Canberra, 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.




COVID:    To help keep folk safe and ensure a more relaxing evening, the team would like to reinforce the well-supported social-distancing precautions
we have had in place since September 2021. We would be very grateful if all our volunteers and audience would wear face masks
when moving around the room and going to the bar. Also, where possible, we would encourage everyone to take a lateral flow test before coming out. Thank you.

PAM & ALAN COLLS

It is six years since our very dear friend Pam Colls died and nearly two since her loving husband, Alan passed away.
Founders of the Dartford Folk Club, they ran the Club together for over 40 years, booking an amazing variety of artists within the Folk genre.
When it is safe to gather again, a celebration of their lives will be held to remember their friendship, achievements and contributions to the music world.

The Dartford Folk Club is now managed by a small team of original members in memory of and as a legacy to Pam & Alan's love for music.
