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.

Their live act is recognised worldwide; 2020 will see the band performing at venues in Australia and New Zealand, as well as touring throughout Mainland Europe and the UK.

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.

SONG - Shammick Acoustic - Winter Wilson
The Pack o’ Cards Inn - High Street, Combe Martin, North Devon , EX34 0ET

Winter Wilson were a featured act at one of Shammick Acoustic’s Open Nights, and the first available date was booked for them to put on a concert for us. Chosen by folk-rock legends Fairport Convention to tour with them, their popularity is such that finding that date wasn’t easy! Born in West Germany, but firmly rooted in the Outer Hebrides, Kip Winter grew up living in a variety of European countries, and influenced by her musician father, sang and played from and early age, in a variety of musical genres, learning a number of different instruments along the way. Dave Wilson is Lincolnshire born and bred, bought his first guitar in his ‘teens and started writing songs. And what songs! Dave draws his material from the full gamut of the human condition and experience, and then presents it in songs that speak simply and directly to the listener, with melodies that are anything but predictable – a rare skill in itself. Add in fine harmonies and expert musicianship, and you can reckon on a memorable night!

Tickets are £9.00 if bought in advance through WeGotTickets or, if you’re in Combe Martin, at The Pack o’ Cards or Pets’ Pantry, both in High Street, or for £10.00 at the door (with a £2.00 discount for members of Shammick Acoustic).  They may also be reserved by ringing Tom & Barbara Brown on 01271 882366.
