He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. He sings simple songs that tackle big issues… songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honesty and quick wit.
The brilliant Beans on Toast performs at RMH for the first time on May 20th!
“The perfect antidote to re-energise us all” – Louder Than War
Essex born folk songwriter Beans on Toast is an extremely unique performer. Twisting an age-old genre with a D.I.Y. approach and contemporary concerns has earned him the title of a cult figure who tells it like it is. A festival favourite (he’s played Glastonbury every year since 2007) and a prolific writer and performer. He’s written and recorded 11 albums and he’s played every bar, club, venue, pub, festival, party and honky-tonk you can think of.
He’s constantly writing, recording and releasing music and puts out a new album each year on 1st December, which happens to be his birthday. Each album recorded with a different producer and musicians, over the years he’s worked with the likes of Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons), Frank Turner and Kitty and Lewis Durham (Kitty, Daisy & Lewis).
He tours constantly and has gigged and played festivals all over the world. The Beans on Toast live show is an odd and unpredictable experience. A singer, songwriter and storyteller his self-deprecating quality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrier between musician and audience, creating a sense of equality.
