We’re delighted to be bringing Beans on Toast back to Gorilla!

Cult folk legend Beans on Toast is coming to town to promote his new album A Bird in The Hand and he’s bringing a full band with him. His 10th studio album, out 1 December, was produced by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett at the legendary Church Studios (Bob Dylan/Radiohead/Adele) and is quite possibly his finest, most accomplished work to date.

This extensive UK tour will see the unique live performer, on stage in his element playing songs from the new record alongside crowd favourites from his varied and extensive back catalogue. Over the course of his huge career Beans has become something of a cult national treasure. What seemed like a throwaway festival act has evolved into something much more important, a voice of truth and honesty, cutting through the bullshit. A consistent and reliable modern-day troubadour, not afraid to speak his mind; always touring, always writing, recording and releasing music. Playing every festival under the sun and always, always, telling it like it is.

Tour support comes from Jess Morgan. Listen out for the stories in Jess Morgan’s songs. She has been called a songwriter’s songwriter, and her latest album; a tumbler of unfancied, gutsy song. Her melodies will ring in your ears for days and her stories will play on your heart long after that. The album is out with Drabant Music and Jess is currently the Norwegian label’s only British artist. Edison Gloriette is a record about love and loneliness. BBC Wales linchpin Adam Walton said on first play: ‘It’s a blinder.’
