Church Street,


Pioneering ‘bloke folk’ trio FAUSTUS touring the UK in October and releasing a brand new album ‘Death & Other Animals’ .
Faustus is an established name in the English folk scene made up of three of the best-known and talented English folk musicians – Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast), Benji Kirkpatrick (Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman Band), and Saul Rose (Waterson: Carthy, War Horse).
During 2016 they have been artists in residence with Halsway Manor, the national centre for folk arts in Somerset, where they have had access to the Manor’s extensive library. Material found therein has shaped this new album which includes four songs unique to Halsway’s little known Ruth Tongue archive. Not only did they research material there, they also recorded the album in the Manor.
See them live in Essex…
