Beans On Toast

Beans On Toast is this week’s special guest in The Moonshine Sessions.... every year, the much-loved folk musician releases a new album on the 1st of December and we were very lucky to have him pop into the studio to play tracks from his latest LP ‘A Bird In The Hand ’.

Jay McAllister first adopted his stage name Beans On Toast in 2005 and quickly became an essential booking for any respectable festival owing to his boundless charisma which has seen him become the opening act for Glastonbury every year. Addressing serious topics like depression and politics in the same jovial style he approaches love and friendship, McAllister is the voice of reason and the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern living.
