We’re excited to be welcoming Beans on Toast back to Band on the Wall!

The captivating troubadour known as Beans on Toast embarks on a joyous musical escapade in early 2024. Captivating hearts and minds with his tales of love, politics and the human experience, Beans is unafraid to challenge the status quo with his irreverent wit and soul-stirring lyricism.

Like a modern-day minstrel, Beans on Toast takes to the road on a captivating journey across towns and cities of the UK. His songs, the celebration of the human spirit and a call for unity resonate deeply in the hearts of listeners, leaving them inspired and moved. Inviting us to reflect, laugh and remember that amidst the chaos, there is still hope and beauty to be found.

This tour will be the debut outing for the new ‘Beans on Toast Band’ – a collection of musical misfits and talented troublemakers from around the country, who will be smashing out tunes from his highly acclaimed new album The Toothpaste and the Tube alongside a long list of bangers from his insanely huge back catalogue of songs about the human experience.

Members of the new band will also perform on the night, performing their own songs and poems. These include Scottish guitar wizard and folk songsmith Memphis Gerland, Honky Tonk Royalty King Killership, and festival poet extraordinaire, Bassie Gracie.

This will be a night like no other, a thoughtful celebration of life, friendship and music.

Everyone’s invited.
