Each week we put someone in the hot seat and ask them 10 questions about themselves. This week we spoke with Duncan Bellamy from Portico Quartet, ahead of their show at Norwich Arts Centre on April 5.

• Describe Norwich in three words...

A fine city.

• If you were stranded on a deserted island which three people would you want with you?

Ray Mears, I'm sure he'd be able to build us a house and he'd also possibly get us off the island. Debussy as we'd need some music to keep us entertained and Meera Sodha because she seems like a nice person and she'd be able to keep us well fed with her delicious cooking.

• If you could be anyone else who would you be?

I don't think spending your life wishing to be someone else is very productive, so I'll stick with me.
