The Belshaw Band project has involved a number of players and performances
in a variety of venues (pubs, restaurants, theatres and, on multiple occasions,
at the Bristol Community Festival at Ashton Court).
The band was formed whilst Simon Belshaw studied at Bath (alongside Mike, Julie, Sarah and Cheryl)
and continued through his postgraduate study with Gavin Bryars at the University of Hertfordshire.
The music has an infectious rhythmic power and you'll hear influences from Bryars, Nyman,
Andriessen, Martland; from Baroque, rock and pop, minimalism and even a touch of jazz.
Fantastic evening! A band with such very talented musicians and they were having such good fun. Encore please!
The Belshaw Band in the music room at Exeter Library last night.
Driving, euphoric and mesmerising compositions combining logical structures and systems with an expressive lyricism and soaring rhythmic trajectory.
Heart and mind in other words. A marvellous evening of hugely engaging music performed by a superb group of musicians,
with Laura Collins' striking collage providing a visually arresting backdrop throughout,
and very evidently enjoyed by the large audience which filled the room.
