Previously nominated for the Best Group Award in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and in the wake of the latest album ‘Broken Down Gentlemen’ (Navigator Records, 2013), Faustus brings to the stage three of the leading lights of their generation: Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Whapweazel, War Horse), Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Bellowhead) and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast). They have a plethora of experience between them, brought together here in a virtuosic display of musicianship and testosterone representing the best in the current vibrant English folk scene.
‘A distinctive blend of subtlety and attack’
‘The concept? To rescue contemporary folk from the curse of feyness…Bloke-folk!’
