‘Faustus somehow manage to make folk sound traditional and cutting edge at the same time. It’s a good trick to pull off and a thrilling show for the spectator.’ (English Dance and Song)  

With their feet planted squarely in ‘the tradition’, the trio are seasoned ambassadors for English music. Setting the band apart are the distinctive individual voices of Benji Kirkpatrick, Paul Sartin, and Saul Rose. Their close harmonies are faultless and well-crafted and all three members trade lead vocals to great effect. Not content to cover the same ground twice, song after song surprises and entertains. ‘We do work hard on crafting arrangements to make them musically interesting, and also stitching together texts to make music that is not just ephemeral, but has some sort of lasting quality.’ 

Benji Kirkpatrick (Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman Band, Steeleye Span) - vocals, bouzoukis, guitars, mandolin, banjo

Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar's Feast, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings) - vocals, fiddle, oboe, cor anglais

Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Whapweasel, Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band) - vocals, melodeon
