Following the runaway success of his extended UK tour earlier this year, the cult hero Beans On Toast has already plotted his return with a “mahoosive ramble” for 2023.
One man and his guitar with songs to sing and stories to tell, UK fans will be able to catch him performing at 30 of the country’s finest independent venues throughout February and March.
Speaking about the upcoming tour Beans says:
“Folk music is an age-old art form, and it’s more relevant than ever in these wild and crazy modern times. You can expect an inspiring and entertaining gig, a relaxed and fun affair that leaves you feeling like you’ve met up with an old friend, and you’re all the better for it.”
Since 2005, Beans on Toast has written simple songs about complicated subjects. Tackling the big issues of the day but doing so with his feet firmly on the ground, he’s become a people’s champ of the modern folk scene and amassed a huge back catalogue of songs in the process.
An unrepentant optimist whose songs celebrate all that is wonderful about the human spirit, his live shows are similarly uplifting and have taken him from SOLD OUT headline shows in the UK to the stages of major international festivals across the globe.
Releasing his latest studio album at the end of 2021, Survival Of The Friendliest, the record proved a hit with fans and critics alike, with RNR Magazine praising “the lyrics shimmer with Beans’ “trademark of truth and humour.. Captivating”, whereas Louder Than War hailed it as “the perfect antidote to re-energise us all”.
Already working on the follow-up, which will be out in December as usual, stay-tuned for further news from Beans on Toast in the coming weeks…
