Singers and Musicians Night
A chance to sing and play, hopefully in the Main Hall at the Barlow (but on Zoom if restrictions have been re-introduced!) If live, numbers may have to be limited to faciliate social distancing.
You are most welcome to join us as a performer or as a member of the audience, on a first come first served basis.

Live concert with Belshazzar's Feast 8pm
This is scheduled to be our first live concert back at the Barlow.
Let's hope that all goes according to plan!
This amazing duo, Paul Sartin (fiddle, oboe, vocals) and Pal Hutchinson (piano accordion) have been playing together for 25 years and manage to combine accomplished musicianship with belly-aching humour. I've been looking forward to this concert for about two years now! But don't take my word for it, here's a quote from Mike Harding and another from the Cambridge times
"Paul Hutchinson and Paul Sartin play like no-one else you’ve ever heard. Their music is breath-taking and wickedly inventive and the between-tunes interchange as intelligent and hilarious as the music. But don’t let me give you the impression they’re a lightweight comedy act: they finish the set with a haunting piece of oboe and accordion magic which has the audience spellbound."
"Musicians Paul Sartin (oboe, violin, swanee whistle and vocals) and Paul Hutchinson (accordion) are notorious for their superlative ability, wit, rapport and depth of experience, creating a concert to remember.
Together, as Belshazzar’s Feast, they have entertained audiences across the UK, Australia and beyond with their eclectic and eccentric mix of tunes, songs and humour.
Live audiences can look forward to an inspired collection of tunes – stirred into the mix are classical, pop, music hall and traditional folk music, all laced with the duo’s wry humour"
