Not the first time the dangerous duo have ventured into "seasonal album" terrain, and probably not the last. English festiveness is home turf.

The Feast comprise Paul Sartin (voice, reeds, violin, Bellowhead) and Paul Hutchinson (accordion), which doesn't sound like much but actually amounts to quite a lot of musicality. Their stock in trade is taking traditional material and giving it a robust, sometimes humorous, twist. Occasionally, they touch the sublime.
