Cult folk star is set to play Bristol in March 2023

Posted on: 15 Dec 2022

Off the back of the runaway success of his extended tour earlier this year, Beans on Toast has arranged a “mahoosive ramble” tour for 2023.


Beans on Toast will play Bristol’s The Fleece on Thursday 23 March.


The ‘Back Out On The Road’ tour will see Beans, armed only with his guitar and some stories to tell, performing songs to swathes of music fans at 30 of the country’s finest independent venues – including The Fleece.





Beans on Toast (real name Jay McAllister) began writing simple songs about complicated subjects all the way back in 2005. McAllister’s preoccupation with tackling big issues but with his feet firmly on the ground has won him status as a true champion of the modern folk scene, amassing a massive and varied back catalogue of songs in the process. 


An optimist through and through optimist whose songs celebrate the human spirit, his live shows are uplifting experiences that have seen him sell out headline shows all over the UK and play international festivals worldwide. 


Beans’ most recent album Survival of the Friendliest was released last year with the record proving a hit with fans and critics alike, indeed, Louder Than War hailed it as "the perfect antidote to re-energise us all".


Earlier this month, Beans released his debut children’s book series and accompanying record 'The Fascinating Adventures of Little Bee’ (out now). Presenting tales and songs from his extensive back catalogue, Beans on Toast will be ‘Back Out On The Road’ for an extensive UK tour in 2023.

As well as Bristol, Beans will drop by venues in Colchester, Norwich, Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Nuneaton, Leicester, Sheffield, Birkenhead, Newcastle, Aberdeen, Dundee, Lancaster, Middlesbrough, York, Lincoln, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Southampton, Falmouth, Exeter, Stroud, Bath, Swansea, Reading and London.
