We’re excited to be working with Beans on Toast again – this time at Band on The Wall!

Outlaw folk musician Beans on Toast will be hitting the road next Spring, with a mahoosive ramble around the countries finest independent venues.

One man and his guitar with songs to sing and stories to tell. Unafraid to tackle the big issues of the day, but doing so with his feet firmly on the ground. He’s an un-repenting optimist who’s songs celebrate all that is wonderful about the human spirit.

Folk music is an age old art form and it’s more relevant that ever in these wild and crazy modern times.

You can expect a gig that is both inspiring and entertaining, 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.

Special guests is GUISE. GUISE is the voice and heart of Jessica Guise. Possessed of a remarkable folk lilt, she sings with delicacy whilst imparting dry wit and vicious asides – by turns sweet and haunting. After the success of their first EP, The Fun Part, in 2020, Guise released their first studio album Youngest Daughter on Xtra Mile, produced by Jess’ husband, Frank Turner. Reaching number 18 in the Official Folk Chart, the album received rave reviews; ‘a staggering debut from Guise who are surely going to take over the indie-folk scene’ (Vinyl Chapters). Building up her live profile supporting the likes of Richard Thompson, Will Varley, Grace Petrie and Frank, Guise is an entertainer at heart and her openness, vulnerability and sense of humour set her apart.

‘The tracks flow and ripple with an elegant precision, swinging and swaying through woven elements of jazz, folk and universally-penetrable pop’ – Original Rock Magazine
