Folk Trio Faustus at The Golden Lion Ripon
Pioneering bloke-folk trio FAUSTUS tour the UK this Autumn following the 2017 release of their EP ‘Slaves’, hot on the heels of their acclaimed album ‘Death & Other Animals’ (2016), produced by Rupert Christie (Bellowhead), Faustus and Westpark Music.de. During 2016 they were artists in residence at Halsway Manor, the National Centre for Folk Arts in Somerset, where they had access to the Manor’s extensive library and where ‘Death and Other Animals’ was recorded. ‘Slaves’ EP follows on, a mix of live and recorded tracks.
Death and Other Animals has just received the German Critics Award (Schallplatenkritik Bestenliste) in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter/World Music Category, a great achievement that should stand them in good stead for their maiden German tour in September. Faustus is a well established name in the English folk scene made up of three of the best-known and talented English folk musicians – Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast), Benji Kirkpatrick (Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman Band), and Saul Rose (Waterson: Carthy, Whapeazel, War Horse). Faustus were also in the recent production and tour of ‘The Transports’, alongside a stellar line up of folk musicians, telling tales of exile and migration, dubbed the ‘folk music event of 2017’ Don’t miss this chance to see Faustus’ live show near you! www.faustusband.com Photo Credit Luke Pajak.co.uk www.wegottickets.com/event/408703 Tickets £15 adv. show 8pm
Martin House Open day
Our Open Day is all about giving our supporters, an insight into the vital services that we offer to our families across West, North and East Yorkshire. This is the only time of year when our supporters can see inside Martin House and Whitby Lodge. Between 11am and 3pm, you can tour the hospice, buy Martin House goodies, take a chance on the tombola, taste delicious homemade treats, meet our team, and find out more about how we support local families with money you have raised. The day is perfect for all the family, with animals from Nuzzlets Farm as well as the opportunity to try out our newly redeveloped outdoor play areas. There will also be chances to donate goods for sale in our shops and to find out more about volunteering. For the first time this year we will have a pop-up shop, featuring unique, upcycled clothes created by our Martin House Makers. The open day takes place at Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People, Grove Road, Boston Spa, LS23 6TX, from 11am to 3pm and admission is free.
