Faustus April Tour Comes to Whitchurch Folk Club

Early 2020 saw Faustus performing in Australia and New Zealand. The band are back in the UK and touring in April 2020 with a selection of their material, including from their newest EP, Cotton Lords (2019).
Playing music for our times, Faustus take traditional English music, rip it up, put it together again and move it on. A vigorous rhythmic impetus and rock/prog rock influence propels the sound into the here and now and a range of instruments deployed in unconventional ways gives a unique texture, depth and variety to the band’s sound.
Driving rhythms on bouzouki and guitar are reinforced by the melodeon, fiddle, oboe and cor anglais, creating arrangements that are intriguing and subtle, boisterous or punchy. Setting the band apart are the distinctive individual voices of Benji Kirkpatrick, Paul Sartin and Saul Rose. Their close harmonies are faultless,well-crafted and all three trade lead vocals to great effect. Photo:Richard Gearey www.billetto.co.uk/e/faustus-tickets-405469
