Music - Folk & Country
Faustus Autumn Tour Comes to Nettlebed Folk Club
Faustus are known for captivating audiences with their sheer room-shaking power, vocal precision and instrumental mastery. Put simply, this band has complete command on stage and in the studio.
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 and well-crafted and all three members trade lead vocals to great effect. Photo Credit Richard Gearey www.nettlebedfolkclub.co.uk
