Beans on Toast, More Than Just a Musical Snack
The tradition of eating beans on toast began during WWII as a cheap source of protein for British families. But Jay McAllister, the folk singer known by his fans as Beans on Toast, is more than just a cheap source of music. He began his career in 2005 as part of the London folk scene. From there, Beans on Toast went on to open the Glastonbury Festival, and has been a regular there ever since. He offers a taste of home-and-hearth style mixed with social justice issues in his eclectic collection of music.
The 2014 Beans on Toast Tour begins in Aberdeen at the Lemon Tree, and makes its way steadily south to Glasgow. Venues include historic rock 'n' roll theatres such as the Ruby Lounge in Manchester, and smaller establishments such as the Hare and Hounds in Birmingham. The tour ends at the Electric Ballroom, a historic music venue in the heart of Camden Town, London. Here, Beans on Toast will take to the stage that has played host to such legends as Paul McCartney and Wings, Led Zeppelin and Gary Glitter.
Beans on Toast is known as "Jay" to his friends. He chose the name Beans on Toast as a tribute to the original dish, which served as a cheap and filling dish for Brits during hard times.
