After a two year break this creative and energetic English folk trio recently returned to the fray, going back on the road to promote an acclaimed new album, Broken Down Gentlemen. Comprising Saul Rose on melodeon (Waterson:Carthy, Warhorse), Benji Kirkpatrick on guitar, bouzouki, mandolin and banjo (Seth Lakeman Band, Bellowhead) and Paul Sartin on fiddle and oboe (Bellowhead, Belshazzar's Feast), with all three singing, Faustus has a deep love of English traditional folk song, indecent amounts of talent and bags of musical imagination, not to mention a healthy streak of humour.

'A supremely confident and forthright collection of traditional songs … full of old-fashioned virtues of directness, musicality and passionate performance' fRoots
