Sat 15 Oct – Faustus

The Multi Award Winning Folk trio

‘A blend of energy and musicianship that establishes this trio as one of Britain’s outstanding folk bands…[a] distinctive blend of subtlety and attack.’

**** The Guardian

‘The concept?  To rescue contemporary folk from the curse of feyness…

Bloke-folk!… Fans of Led Zep III should take a thoughtful interest.’

**** Independent On Sunday

‘[A] beautifully played set that encompasses everything that’s best in modern traditional music.’  Acoustic

‘English traditional songs played with great verve and no little imagination’

**** R2

Nominated in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the Faustus triumvirate are three of the leading lights of their generation: Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Whapweazel), 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.  Rooted deeply in the English tradition, in 2007 they received a 75th Anniversary Award from the English Folk Dance and Song Society.
