“Frill-free folk music, superbly and tastefully performed . . . a folk essential. **** ” —Sunday Times

“A considered album of exceptional class. ***** ” —Daily Telegraph

Former nominees for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the Faustus triumvirate are three of the leading lights of English folk music of their generation. Subsequent touring saw them headlining at festivals, as well as playing sold out concerts at arts centres and clubs and, in 2007, they received a 75th Anniversary Award from the English Folk Dance and Song Society. The group features Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Whapweasel), Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Bellowhead) and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast). Their new album, BROKEN DOWN GENTLEMEN, was produced by Stu Hanna of popular English folk duo Megson and features their trademark powerful delivery, faultless harmonies, inspired arrangements and a sprinkling of some of the earthiest songs in the folk cannon. In short, they are men on a mission to banish all that is bland and cliche in the delivery of folk music. Their plethora of experience is brought together in a virtuosic display of musicianship and testosterone.
