Pioneering bloke-folk trio FAUSTUS tour the UK this Autumn following the 2017 release of their EP ‘Slaves’, hot on the heels of their acclaimed album ‘Death & Other Animals’ (2016), produced by Rupert Christie (Bellowhead), Faustus and Westpark Music.de. During 2016 they were artists in residence at Halsway Manor, the National Centre for Folk Arts in Somerset, where they had access to the Manor’s extensive library and where ‘Death and Other Animals’ was recorded. ‘Slaves’ EP follows on, a mix of live and recorded tracks.
Death and Other Animals has just received the German Critics Award (Schallplatenkritik Bestenliste) in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter/World Music Category, a great achievement that should stand them in good stead for their maiden German tour in September.
Faustus is a well 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, Whapeazel, War Horse). Faustus were also in the recent production and tour of ‘The Transports’, alongside a stellar line up of folk musicians, telling tales of exile and migration, dubbed the ‘folk music event of 2017’
