Folk hero Beans On Toast to host St Patricks Day party at Cheese & GrainPosted on: 28 Feb 2019
It's going to be a right ol' craic when folk legend Beans on Toast plays with a line-up of some very special guests for a St Patrick's Day Party at Cheese & Grain in Frome near Bath on Saturday 16th March 2019.
For those with their finger on the folk scene pulse - or anyone who just likes genuine, brilliant, heartfelt folk, for that matter - the name Beans on Toast will be a more than familiar one. He's become something of a national treasure; a loveable, bearded, be-hatted, guitar-playing troubadour who has emerged from the folk scene fringes to become an icon, a legend in his own lifetime.
Ol' Beans is always on the go, flitting from place to place to packed-out crowds sharing his unique view of the world with songs brimming with honesty, humour, poignancy and with absolutely no time for any BS. A festival fave as well as a regular, immensely popular venue fixture, he's prolific, truthful, uncompromising, supremely talented and utterly, utterly brilliant.
He'll be joined by a few special guests at his Cheese & Grain gig too. Gaz Brookfield (regular sell-out at Bristol's The Fleece, constantly on tour, supporting the likes of Frank Turner and Seth Lakeman) will perform a solo set, while the night will also see support from Oxygen Thief, Henry Wacey & The Orchard Keepers and Brightr.
With a line-up like that, there's sure (to be sure) an abundance of great music, prodigious drinking and good times. And remember, actual St Patrick's Day is Sunday 17th (ie: the next day), so you might as well just carry on with a vivifying slurp of hair of the dog next morning and make the entire weekend a hearty, shamrock-decorated, Guinness-quaffing celebration. (Editor's Note: As a socially conscience entertainment magazine, we fully endorse a strict policy of drinking sensibly and responsibly.)
Doors open at 7pm. Tickets cost £10 Early Bird, £12 advance and can be snapped up here. Cheese & Grain is located at Market Yard, Justice Lane, Frome, BA11 1BE. Tel. 01373 455420
