Faustus - New Album and North West Tour Dates

FaustusNominated in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the Faustus triumvirate are three of the leading lights of English folk music of their generation: Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Whapweasel), Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Bellowhead) and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast).

Specialising in powerful delivery, faultless harmonies, inspired arrangements and a sprinkling of some of the earthiest songs in the folk cannon, they are men on a mission to banish all that is anodyne and fey in the delivery of folk music.   Which should hopefully see the end of Mumford and Sons.

Faustus have a new album out, Broken Down Gentlemen on 11th March and a tour in April.  Venues covered by this site are listed below.
